It’s always exciting when something brand new drops into my inbox. Especially when it’s not just a new band but a brand-new record label as well.
Greenhorse Records are a new Americana label based in Preston. They have been running successful live nights in the town’s New Continental venue and are now ready to announce their first release.
West on Colfax are a four-piece alt-country rock band releasing their debut single ‘Choke Hold’. It’s obvious from the first listen that this band draws influences from the likes of Wilco, Teenage Fanclub, and The Jayhawks.
The song has a wonderful chorus and killer country licks throughout. Alan Hay’s voice carries a real authenticity to it. I found myself craving more harmony singing, though that said, it really is an infectious number that has your toe tapping along.
The song is accompanied by a great video which you can watch below.
I’m really looking forward to hearing more from this band and I’m sure you will too.
‘Choke Hold’ is out on January 10th for download only.
