The New Breed - The Young And The Reckless: Single Review
Words: Anne Estella
Some songs are ‘growers’ and that’s fine, but others, the really special ones, are ‘love at first listen’. The Young And The Reckless - the new single from Manchester five-piece THE NEW BREED – just happens to be one of those. Racing at high velocity on an adrenaline-fuelled rock n’ rollercoaster, The Young And The Reckless infuses hooky melodic verses with a frenzied, punk-pop pulse and insanely catchy choruses. The raw, upbeat anthem delivers a modern, rebellious aural onslaught with a vintage vibe, and just when you thought you’d heard all that the groove-laden track has to offer, a searing guitar solo is unleashed with crushing intensity, leaving your head spinning and your heart pounding. There’s a brief deceleration, allowing you just enough time to catch your breath before the pace picks up once again, with powerful, harmonic vocals and thunderous drumming, driving the song to a thrilling finale. The band, which formed in 2015, proudly wears its influences on its sleeve (think ‘90s Green Day, Guns n’ Roses and The Wildhearts) whilst creating a fresh, vibrant, ear-catching sound of their own. This polished, well-produced track has all the hallmarks of a hit single and should put THE NEW BREED firmly on the map.
The Young and The Reckless is taken from THE NEW BREED’s forthcoming debut album and was released with an official lyric video on 27th July 2018.
