FRESH: ‘Bouncing Down The Road’ – The Herron Brothers

The Herron Brothers go “Bouncing Down The Road”!

Those Herron Brothers are back for 2020! Following on from their debut album in 2018, “The Last Ones Left”, and last Autumn’s “The Next Ones” EP, “Bouncing Down The Road” is the first to be taken from the duo’s new album, scheduled for October release. The brothers tell us “Like the rest of the country, we’ve been doing a lot of our work remotely from each other, as we’ve been locked down in separate parts of the city, so lots of video calling and cloud file sharing”.

On the breadline, Old (for pop) unable to tour, and facing an uncertain future, the boys have an interesting take on how they feel about their current challenges…“The plan was that at this point we’d be sat with our feet up as an entire management team updated us on the latest figures coming in” says Paul, “but confusingly that hasn’t happened”. Steven offers an explanation, “I think it may have something to do with the £5 budget we had for promotion last year, so, for now, we’re still, ‘flying under the radar’ you might say”.

The wall is green in the Lads’ flat. The landlord is not happy!

Rather than list all the hats the boys are currently wearing, it’s easier to mention the one thing they haven’t been responsible for this time around. Steven explains, “We’ve collaborated with an amazing artist from Catalonia called Arvon Wellen, for all the stuff we’re releasing this year. So far we’ve been a monochrome kind of act visually, but now it’s time to let the technicolour of pop music flow!” he laughs, trying to understand what he has just said.

A smiley addition to a revered lineage of danceable UK Indie music (think Stone Roses, Happy Mondays, at their most poppy) ‘colourful’ is an apt description of the new single. “It’s got a great, dare I say it, ‘bouncy’ groove” says Paul, “but lyric/message wise, it’s purposefully vague. So, you know, it’s perfect for these times of clarity we’re living in! Whatever is ‘Bouncing Down The Road’ could wipe us out or sort us out, it’s up to the listener I guess”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
