- Straight Jacket Muddibrooke 1:55
Muddibrooke has released their new single titled ‘Straight Jacket’. First off, this song ends way to f*cking soon. Having said that, it totally had me banging, before it left me hanging. This track is fierce. The dirtiest guitars I heard in a while roar through the mix if grit and grime and never let up. Muddibrooke announce with rage that they are f*cking here, man. Here to stay. Here to sleigh. Whatever you call it. I call it blunt force trauma to the ears, but I like it.
Brooke, Anna, and Mary are all in their 20s; and even though they haven’t been playing long as ‘MuddiBrooke’, collectively they have 30 years of experience of playing live in front of many large audiences and supported bands such as The Beautiful South, Scouting For Girls, Dr and The Medics and more.
Since getting together in January 2020, they have released two singles, which have already achieved airplay on Kerrang! Radio made ‘Track of The Week’ on BBC Introducing and even made it into the Top 10 of the Greek Rock Charts for four continuous weeks – as well as many other radio stations around the world such as Canada, United States, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and many more.
Looking to the future, MuddiBrooke plan to release their debut EP, ‘LUNACY’, in Summer 2021 and is currently building a UK Tour and Holland/Germany Tour.
Behind the lyrics of ‘Straight Jacket’
Brooke: “Straight Jacket came from the fact that, like a lot of people, we three all suffer from anxiety. For me, the effects from it can be so strong that it can cause me to have ‘derealisation’ or ‘depersonalisation’; this is a certain form of a panic attack when it feels as though reality is slipping away and nothing is real. It can be very disorientating. I wanted to capture this feeling within a track, and so Straight Jacket was created.
You’d think our anxieties would affect our performance on stage, but it often has the opposite effect where we all feel completely comfortable and ‘at home’.”
‘Straight Jacket’ is one of the five new tracks that will be featured on MuddiBrooke’s debut EP, ‘LUNACY’ – Out August 2021.
