There was no forgetting Cowboy Diplomacy after they explosively burst onto our radars with their raucous Blues Rock single “The Get Down” this summer.
And we’re more than happy to see that they’ve poured more of their authentic Alt Southern Blues Rock sound onto the airwaves with “Bad Man”. There may be plenty of gritty, grimy imagery contained within the single, but the instrumental arrangement carves out a succinctly fluid soundscape.
The music industry suffers from a collective apathy when it comes to hitting play on new artists. Which is totally understandable, frequently, music asks for your attention and gives little in return. But that most definitely isn’t the case with Bad Man, through the perfectly polished layers of Blues you’ll be treated to a potent dose of cathartic aural escapism.
The Austin-based mellifluous powerhouse seems to be in the habit of creating smooth, jazzy, soulful tonalities through energetically rhythmic tracks, it’s going to be incredibly exciting to hear what comes next.
