Black Rebel Motorcycle Club attempts to have a cleaner but harder sound in the fourth album that is coming out soon.
American folk band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will release fourth effort "Baby 81" on May 1 via Red Ink Records. After the critically acclaimed third album "Howl', the band is tickled to try something 'more' on this one.
The band has admitted that they use a harder but more 'raw' sound to complete the record. There would be lots of Robert Levon Been' guitar riffs that is topped by solid rhythm of newly reunited drummer Nick Jago. "It was a really powerful thing because of the state of mind we were in. It's a very clean sound," Been said, "not that sort of dirty wall of sound they had on their earlier albums. There's a lot more room between the grooves, which will make it a little more accessible than the first two were."
"Weapon of Choice" is chosen as the first single from the album which name is inspired by a 2004 tsunami survivor baby Abhilasha Jeyarajah. Been explained the relationship, "You've got to let your baby grow up to be what it wants to be. You've got to let it go."
