Whilst I’m not a massive fan of guns. The Big Gun Show is an America Blues Rock band that I can make no bones about saying they blew me away. I’m a suffer for a soaring guitar riff and some grittily Soulful lyrics to complete the sound. The rhythmic psychedelic edge to the track almost pertains a resonance to other Psychedelic bands such as The Beatles. Yet the Big Gun Show are more than just an assimilation of nostalgic sound, they’ve mixed their penchant with the iconic with their eagerness to swim in the contemporary tides of sound to create truly spectacular Country Rock. Yet, I can’t help but feel that The Big Gun Show is too abrasive of a name for such a cuddly Rock sound. The band have all the raucous edge of the genre, at the same time as being ethereally uplifting.
You can check out Let it Shine on The Big Gun Show’s official website. The band will be taking their debut album on tour all across Texas for all you lucky Texan Blues Rock Aficionados!
