Squelching fuzz-punk pop trio The Bora featuring Will Tierney (Vocals/Guitar) Thierry Sequeira (Drums) and Alex Roberts ( Bass/Backing Vocals) have released a shiny video to go with their new song ‘Only One’.
Named after the wild katabatic winds that rip through Croatia during winter – the lads have been gigging extensively. So far they have supported bands like Sick Puppies, Futures, The Like, BullSeeRed – playing nights such as Club Fandango in London. The Bora also receive regular airplay on BBC INTRODUCING, All FM, Shock Radio, AmazingRadio etc.
This song is about what is really dear to us – what we really hold precious. Probably, when you boil it all down, it’s just one thing. Only One.
So the guitar-chords build up those ideas like a scaffolder might build up his tower. Sounds are bolted on, and then wrenched & ratcheted together. The percussion is always guiding – and always persistently urgent. The guitars fuzz around.
And the “I hope we never fade…” vocal is almost plaintive in it’s anxiety. But this is a happy, upbeat song, with a surfing surge to it.
The fine guitar-work – with some astonishing vocals – makes this piece seem irrepressible and exhilarating.
