It was clear from the release of ‘You Wanna Know’ in 2013 that the Don Broco lads may delve a little more into the realms of pop, and latest single ‘Automatic’ plunges headfirst with a catchy pop melody, this time infused with a funky little rhythm too. Never fear though, despite a Wham!-tastic video (c’mon, the white suits and that pool scene…) their unique charm still remains through the distinct vocals of Rob Damiani and that kicky Broco beat. They have definitely moved on from the days of ‘Thug Workout’, (which is still brilliant in its own way) and with increasing coverage on the likes of Made in Chelsea you might be quick to jump to accusations of selling out. Yet the more you listen to this track the more defying that surge of rock energy is, and Don Broco have proved themselves ready to conquer.
