Bromide – ‘I Remember’ (Scratchy Records)

image002Unless you are called Michael Douglas, Bromide may not be something that you would ordinarily wish to place in your tea. However, on the evidence of their new single alone, the band who share their name with that particular chemical compound make the most sweet music you will surely want to put in your cassette player time and time again.

‘I Remember’ is the title track from the London-based, three-piece’s latest album. It is a song that crackles and fizzes with pure melodic energy. Dripping with late-60s lyrical imagery and a gloriously matching guitar sound, ‘I Remember’ recalls a different time; a time of innocence and simple pleasures.

On the single’s accompanying video – created by film-maker Phil Hayes from some old family holiday cine footage – Ford Corsairs, Consuls and a Hillman Minx travel serenely along open roads through the beautiful English countryside in scenes that add to the song’s unashamed nostalgia and quintessential sense of freedom.

Bromide’s new single ‘I Remember’ is released on 14th August 2015 via Scratchy Records and is available on limited edition cassette and download.
