EP review: MUDDIBROOKE – Luncay

MUDDIBROOKE - Lunacy

Self-release [Release date 22.10.21]

‘Lunacy’ is the debut EP from Derby based alt rockers MuddiBrooke who formed in January 2020. They have previously released two singles and music videos which have seen them receive airplay on Kerrang! Radio and earn them ‘Track of the Week’ on BBC Introducing.

MuddiBrooke consist of ‘Brooke’ Harriet McDonnell (guitar, lead vocals), Anna Melidone (bass, vocals) and Mary Prince (drums).

The title track starts things off and from just one listen you can hear that MuddiBrooke have that certain ‘something’ about them. From the vocals of Brooke and the tight ass rhythm section, this song is a winner. ‘Liverpool Guy’ is a bit of fun lyrically, with said Liverpool guy “Liverpool guy wants to kiss me but I don’t know where he’s been.”

Not quite taken by ‘Straight Jacket’, although at just under two minutes and full of guitar riffs, it certainly packs a punch.

The acoustic ‘Turn To Dust’ shows MuddiBrooke’s gentler side, well until the electric guitar and rhythm section kicks in halfway through! ‘Fake It’ is another alt rocker with a grungy undertone. One of this EP’s strengths is the production which is crisp and precise, especially on the vocals.

MuddiBrooke are a name to watch out for in the coming months as their debut EP is a bit of a belter! ****
