If you’re going to tour with Queens of the Stone Age, you’d higher have your rock – and your grooves – in place. The QOTSA viewers is famously discerning, and people followers will accept nothing much less. But when Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age personally chosen Broncho to heat up the gang for his band on the Villains Tour, he knew what he was doing. Broncho delivers indie- and garage-rock with the proper steadiness of muscle and finesse – and the Oklahoma four-piece at all times delivers. They’ve confirmed that repeatedly, throughout opening slots for among the world’s favourite rock teams, together with Cage the Elephant and Portugal, The Man. And after the discharge of Bad Behavior, their third full-length, they’re able to take their place among the many headliners.
Bad Behavior is an irresistible amalgam of rock swagger, punk cool, and pop smarts. Each music foregrounds a barbed hook, however they’re all drenched in ambiance and mystique, too. The music press has observed: Bad Behavior drew raves from critics at Exclaim, Vinyl, the AllMusic Guide, and plenty of different retailers. The new set, which was launched in October, builds on the indie success of “Class Historian”, the 2014 single that established Broncho as a band to look at. “Class Historian” premiered on Stereogum (“brilliant, buzzing, preternaturally hooky retro storage rock… some bizarrely satisfying hybrid of T.Rex and Phoenix, or is that Pavement masking Bruce Springsteen?”), and has been heard on the Cartoon Network and on the soundtrack for the 2015 movie Vacation.
Broncho additionally takes music movies significantly – however they’re not afraid to mess around with the conventions of the medium. Richard Farmer’s clip for “Big City Boys” is an ideal instance. At first look, it’s a clip about roughnecks, and we see them brawling, ingesting, racing vehicles, and fascinating within the sort of one-upmanship acquainted from small-time gangster films. But Farmer and Broncho handle to invert the expectations of the viewers by casting ladies in all the roles.
