Tony Goff & The Broken Colours ‘Mirrors’ – Review

Indie, Music, New Bands

Tony Goff & The Broken Colours is a fresh lick of paint to rock and roll as we know it. The band have developed a distinctive charm, which will no doubt play a huge part in this new single ‘Mirrors’. In many ways, this will be a coming of age record – firmly setting the tone of who they are not only through reflection, but pointing towards the future.

Latest single ‘Mirrors’ sees Tony Goff & The Broken Colours draw on inspirations from indie legends such as The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys and Sam Fender, exploring difficulties of self identification while serving a straight up indie bop. The band certainly takes that pop rock element in their stride, creating something that is comfortingly familiar, while absolutely their own.

Speaking of this latest release Tony stated: The Current album being written and the singles from it, relate to Tony Goff’s personal struggles and challenges,  but written in an uplifting way as almost to remind Tony of what he has to do.  

However, Tony Goff & The Broken Colours in this track adds a different dimension. With a sprightly melody, bustling rhythm and vibrant vocals, the tone shifts more to accepting oneself rather than dwelling in discomfort. This results in something that is not only brutally honest, but catchy and fun – a hit that is both validating and full of hope.

Welsh Newcomers ‘Al Moses’ Preview New Debut Single And I Want More!

New Bands

Al Moses are an incendiary new band made up of four nineteen-year-old friends from the South Wales valleys, who take on rock and roll history and stamp it with their personalities and the youthful ambition to be heard beyond their hometown.  With its sneering vocals, sizzling riffs and stomping beat, the rollicking ‘I Want More’ encapsulates their burning ambition, the disillusionment of their generation and wraps it in a swaggering chorus.  It’s a hungry opening statement of intent from this exciting young band.

Al Moses singer Jack Shepherd says: ‘It’s a head-on, hands-up anthem for people like us, the disillusioned youth. We just want more than what’s laid out for us. And this song aims to capture that spirit and determination of how we feel right now.’ Jack Shepherd.

Jack and Daf, who co-front and share lead vocals in Al Moses, met at house party 2015. A few days later, after watching The Jesus and Mary Chain at the Cardiff Students Union they adopted the name Al Moses inspired by a religious connotation.

Daf is an aspiring actor, studying at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, already appearing in nationwide drama and cast in various music videos.  Al Moses were chosen in January 2018 to be part of the Forte Project that provides mentoring, live opportunities and practical support for new and upcoming acts based in South Wales.
