Their brand new album We Who Ar. he Embrooks has not only caught the sound and the feel perfectly of those mod-rocking, edelic combos of 1966-68, but also, with their lyrical maturity and confident sense of song construction, arrangement and the potential of the studio, they possess something of the natural zeitgeist, with a strong purpose as to what it means to be living and breathing. Way back it was always the album track people would know. As it turned out Nightmare was so insanely good it was so inspiring.
Actually it’s so heavy that, each time you listen to it you’ll need someone to help you put it on the turntable, and on the other hand, it’ll be good to have someone around to dance with, cuz this one’s sure to make you move! The sound is just as heavy, staying in line with the band’s recent freakbeat leanings. Also, this one would have fitted so nicely on the 2000’s Our New Day album, that it makes me wonder if it comes from the same session as the album opener Standing Upside Down. Remaining in the soundscape of their new day, featuring a mod-band- turned-psych freakbeat, The Embrooks are back on the scene, exploring the back of their mind and takin’ us back in time. Even more than Albums.

The Embrooks Sun's Going Down (Separations.
The Embrooks have picked up where they left off back in 2004 on their second album Yellow Glass Perspections, while expanding their sound somewhat with organ and flute here and there. This is definitely a welcome, positive and long-overdue comeback. England’s premiere three-piece Freakbeat band reunited in 2016 with their fine Nightmare, Helen single, and the a-side is included on We Who Are. It’s only fitting that a full-length album should follow – albeit, after a two-year wait. Still, it was worth the wait. Their American influences come to the surface on Peace of Mind, as the Embrooks offer a haunting tune influenced by Buffalo Springfield and the Byrds. Hang Up, another cool song, adds organ and fuzz and wah-wah to a rocker that recalls Spencer Davis Group or Cream circa 1967. This should be on everyone’s car radio!
