Black Country, New Road propelled themselves far and wide from their first two offerings to the world via 2019’s ‘Athen’s, France’ and ‘Sunglasses’. What followed was live performances gaining legendary status and being declared “the best band in the world” by The Quietus.
Despite the band coming out seemingly fully formed and bristling with a wiry tension that merged post-rock soundscapes with jazz-inflected post-punk, their debut album, For the First Time, manages to straddle a perfect line between this early period incarnation and their ever burgeoning evolution. Very much a collection of tracks aimed to reflect their live set, For the First Time is the perfect capturing of a new band and all the energy that comes with that whilst also clearly the work of a group who have no interest in repetition.
