Press Play: BRONCHO

todayNovember 8, 2019

Background

It’s safe to say that every young Oklahoman has a soft spot for BRONCHO, not only because of their regional roots in Oklahoma City but for their striking rock and roll sound. They captured the hearts of local fans with their fuzzy, guitar-driven rock on their debut album Can’t Get Past The Lips. Track “Try Me Out Sometime” is a jangly, hook-heavy demonstration of garage pop.

The release of BRONCHO’s sophomore album Just Enough Hip To Be Woman brought sleeker production and poppier songwriting. The group expanded their garage rock sound with influence from new wave bands like Cheap Trick and The Cars. Their tracks were as infectious as ever, especially standout single “Class Historian.” The contagious melody will have anyone joining in on the rapid-fire “doot-doot-doot”s.

For their third album Double Vanity, BRONCHO took a slower, more emotional approach. Tracks are dense and blanketed in reverb, but they don’t lack an ounce of energy. Track “Fantasy Boys” is a smooth, dreamy song perfect for a dramatic, slow-dance scene in a teen movie (specifically, the final prom scene from Twilight).

BRONCHO’s latest album Bad Behavior is biting, and completely unapologetic. On the record’s subject matter, frontman Ryan Lindsey stated “Everybody’s been acting badly over the last few years so we made a record about it.” The album merges rock and disco while preserving a signature BRONCHO attitude. Track “Sandman” is driven by groovy guitar riffing over preppy dance beats for an electric hook. BRONCHO are masters of the go-with-the-flow attitude that crafts addictive tracks without conforming to a Top 40 formula. Listeners can always count on them for authentic, catchy hits.
