In October 2018, Boston rockers Watts returned with a new digital single ‘Queens’, a blast of guitar-driven goodness that added another piece of retro trashiness to their expanding legacy.
Moving into the new year, they’ve kick started 2019 by sharing another new track.
‘Breaking Glass’ is everything you’ve come to love about Watts…and more. There’s still a massive swagger, but if anything, it’s even bigger than ever. During the intro John Lynch’s obsession with KISS really cuts through, when a fat bassline and a chunky Ace Frehley inspired riff make an instant impression. Moving into the chorus, the lead vocal is ragged but loaded with a natural bar-room appeal and a simple hook shows why Watts have become cult heroes in Boston and beyond. A Thin Lizzy-esque twin lead guitar tops everything in style, making a track that covers so much of classic rock’s history…recycled with love!
‘Breaking Glass’ is available on a “pay what you want” basis from the Rum Bar Records Bandcamp page. What’s more, the download also includes previous single ‘Queens’ and a third track, ‘The Night The Light Went Down’, so what are you waiting for? Check it out via the Bandcamp widget below!
