Listen :: Proletariat make their debut with 'Mr. Brown'
Words: Ellie Ward
Some fast and furious rock 'n' roll riffs are delivered here on 'Mr. Brown', the debut single from Proletariat.
Released last Friday (April 21), it is the first cut from the Mossley, Manchester band's debut EP 'Always The Same', out on May 5.
A live favourite, 'Mr. Brown' offers some blistering punk guitar riffs that augment the sharp grungy vocals that could have come straight from the 70s, mixed with a dose of Noughties' Slaves.
In a recent interview with GIGsoup, vocalist James Cummins said of the song, "'Mr. Brown’ is the demon that lives in all of us," adding: "A lot of people think that it’s about heroin, but I can’t say that, at the age of 20, any of us have delved into it so it’s definitely not about that."
Proletariat play their first headline show at Jimmy’s, Manchester on May 5 for This Feeling. They are also confirmed for Oldham's Cotton Clouds Festival on August 12.
