Debut single from rising new UK alt rock four-piece Secret Son, released through Believe Recordings with an EP due later this year.

Artist: The Front Bottoms
Release: Talon of the Hawk
Genre: Rock – Alternative
‘Talon of the Hawk’ is The Front Bottoms’ second full-length record that has skyrocketed since its May release in the U.S. It follows the New Jersey band’s self-titled LP that pushed them into indie success and led them to tour with Kevin Devine and Say Anything. The band has toured a handful of times in the U.K. and Europe. They just ended a successful Euro tour in April and will be going back overseas in September and October.
At the core of ‘Talon of the Hawk’ is the crazy hybrid of slamming rock drumming and acoustic guitar The Front Bottoms are known for, but this time the band augments their sound with electric guitars, synths, even a little accordion. Brian Sella’s confident heartfelt vocals will have you laughing one minute, crying the next, and then maybe pumping your fist and singing along when you least suspect it.
