Title: Nothing Personal EP
Catalogue Number: Coffee Jingle Records
Review Format: MP3
Release Year: 2013
Running smartly through the backwoods of yesterday’s blues rock are Southampton band The Broken Arrows with only the four songs on their “Nothing Personal” EP left behind them as evidence of their musical abilities.
Even for a band of these times, these are rather restrained performances with the laconic vocals of Chris Gunby setting the tone through all these four honest and wholesome songs and you can, at times, feel yourself wanting him to wake up and really let rip. “Eyes Fixed On The Sky”, in particular, just cried out for an injection of overwrought emotion.
The rest of the band acquit themselves well and there is undoubtedly a beer drinking comfort blanket to be had from this kind of music that many will appreciate.
The EP is available for download from Bandcamp.
