Disraeil Gears – “Born and Bred”

17 Mar

Disraeli Gears

It’s been nearly two years since we last heard from our ’D’ band, Disraeli Gears but we’re pleased to see that the London based four piece are finally back with some new music to enjoy.

It would also appear that they have come back with some renewed focus and, having just completed university, a feeling that this is a new start. Certainly their newly cleared soundcloud gives the impression that a line has been drawn in the sand and “Born and Bred” is the first step beyond it. Not that it represents a shocking new musical direction, they haven’t suddenly gone all nu-metal on us, but they have evolved.

There are delightful guitar wobbles within but the overall wooziness of their previous work has been refined. It’s not quite as ‘viewing the world through broken glasses’ as its predecessors but more in focus. That said, those wobbles give a fantastically furtive and surreptitious sensibility to “Born and Bred”, like the soundtrack to something we shouldn’t really be seeing. It’s all glances over your shoulder, trenchcoats and sneaking with Teia Fregona’s vocals the main protagonist in this clandestine and somewhat sinister feeling movie of evocative strings, foreboding beats and a building sense of danger and dread.

It’s great to have them back.
