Don Broco come screeching out the blocks with Automatic, their second album and most ambitious and highly driven record to date. The album sees the Bedford four-piece expand on their firmly established rock roots, to create a gigantic new Don Broco sound. It’s a musical melting pot that draws upon pop, funk, dance and 80s New Romanticism, alongside the upbeat rock drama for which they are known.
Released through Epic Records and produced by the Grammy Award winning Jason Perry, Automatic is a record that sees Don Broco at their most accomplished and comfortable. From the funk-driven introduction of ‘Superlove’ and the in-your-face swagger of ‘Keep On Pushing’, to the hard hitting ‘Fire’ collaboration with DJ Fresh, their newest record manages to marry together their undoubted feel for fun with a matured new sound.
“When we first started writing Automatic, it felt like a new beginning,” frontman Rob Damiani begins the album story. “The four of us hadn’t all written together before and we were excited to discover how we could work as a team.”
Automatic saw Don Broco return to songwriting a highly determined and almost new band, as bassist Tom Doyle – who joined the band in 2012 – filled a vital role with album number two. It was an addition that instantly strengthened the band, and the first signifier that things were heading in the right direction was with the release of 2013’s You Wanna Know EP. It gave Don Broco their first taste of the Top 40 singles chart and showcased the band’s big-room sound.FOLLOW US on Social Media:
