Brooke Law - Boomerang
Brooke Law only recently arrived on our radar with a magnificent cameo appearance set at Pizza Express Holborn. She may have been squirrelled away at the bottom of the bill but the impression she made was long lasting. She played acoustically that night and gave an outing to her forthcoming single "Boomerang" which even in that stripped back format sounded fantastic. That single has now arrived and Brooke has delivered on all the promise shown that niht and then some!!
On the night it was made clear that great as she is acoustically, Brooke is normally to found fronting a more rocking combo and "Boomerang" starts with Brooke strumming her electric guitar with minimal
backing as she lays out what is on her mind.
"I thought that you'd be like a Boomerang - but you pick and choose when you come back around
and you don't see anything wrong with that - you don't know you're letting me down"
Aditional guitar and powerful drums come in and Brook ups the atmosphere further
"I give and I give and I give and I give - every song, every line, every smile every wish
and I give and I give and I give and I give - everything"
Before we hit the chorus, Brooke's delivery builds and builds until she finally explodes
"Come on and give me it back"
Complete with a rocking guitar solo that The Edge would be proud of, this is really refreshing stuff.
One of the things that impressed on that fateful night in Holborn was Brookes ability to go from all out rocking to almost whispering her vocals and that occurs here as everything subsides to leave just Brooke and her guitar before once again returning to full rocklng mode. With an album to follow this is one Law we will certainly be following!!
