Local music in Birmingham
Written by katie_grimason on September 17, 2013
Having a passion for music and being from Birmingham myself it’s always a pleasure to find out about bands that are emerging and looking to gain recognition in the world of music. We have seen some of the country’s most successful bands start their careers in the West Midlands with Black Sabbath being one of the most well known as well as Duran Duran, Ocean Colour Scene, The Moody Blues and The Editors!
I’ve recently come across new talent of the West Midlands such as New Killer Shoes, Minimum and Broken Witt Rebels who all have their own unique sound and also show that the music scene across the city continues to grow and develop since the days of Black Sabbath. The latest band I’ve been following are Broken Witt Rebels who originate from Castle Vale and their new single includes ‘Call Out The Sun’ which sounds very psychedelic and has a classic rock influence; you can watch the video below and also be sure to check out their debut single ‘All Worn Out’. I have to say I really like their music, I’ve been listening to both songs a lot and Birmingham is continually being put on the map of quality music with emerging bands such as Broken Witt Rebels which makes me proud to be a Brummie!
The band will be playing a local gig at the Farnborough Road Playing Fields at the Castle Vale Festival, which is taking place this week on Friday 20th September so it’s worth checking them out! On the 28th September they will be supporting The View at Coventry Kasbah, tickets for this are £5 so if you’re in the area go and support them.
Keep up to date by following them on Twitter: @Brokenwittrebel and liking their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Broken-Witt-Rebels/179227392408?fref=ts to see what up and coming gigs they are playing.
