Review: Them Bruins New Single ‘Heading For The Harrows’

Melbourne boys Them Bruins have released a cracking new single ‘Heading For The Harrows’ and if we wouldn’t annoy the whole office doing so, we’d be cranking it out of the speakers right now.

Them Bruins released their debut EP back in 2012 but since then have been a little off the radar. It wasn’t until 2014 that they bunkered down and got stuck into writing new material. In comes ‘Heading For The Harrows’.

The opening of the single hits you like a slap in the face, but the nice kind of slap…if there is one. It dives straight into heavy bass drum and reverberating symbols, giving it a tight punk-rock vibe, although the two are somewhat contradictory.

Their sound has been compared to Muse and you can definitely see why in this song. The high pitched vocals pierce through the dense sound of the track and are very reminiscent of Matt Bellamy’s voice, Muse’s front-man. But where Them Bruins differ from Muse is in their grittiness, the kind of grittiness that is more endearing than Muse’s over-produced, studio hits.  

The sound of feedback gives the song a garage grunge feel, an all-encompassing sound that you can see rattling the roller door and really pissing off the neighbours. The high-energy track is a very confident offering from the group, with seamless use of harmonies, echo, tight riffs, and changes in tempo.

Do yourself a favour and get an earful of ‘Heading For The Harrows’ and turn it up loud.
