Biddy & the Bullets - Dark Side

Formerly a solo artist and now leading her own band, chart-topping singer-songwriter Biddy Ronelle emerges with fresh wings as the frontwoman of Biddy & The Bullets. Not for the faint of heart, this new Americana-rock band is certain to raise an eyebrow or two – but with its southern rock sensibilities and Biddy’s signature soaring vocals, the band is sure to make quite the splash.

 

Dark Side explodes with a riff reminiscent of The Cadillac Three (and if you know me, you know I adore TC3 – so I’m happy as a pig in mud already).

 

‘Come and take my hand / I can help you understand / I’ll be your white rabbit / follow me down into Wonderland’

 

The band’s debut is, quite simply, an introduction. Much heavier than Biddy’s solo releases – and indeed most of the UK’s country music scene – the song burns through guitar riffs to a blazing, anthemic chorus. It’s almost more suited to rock radio than country – but the swampy, southern style anchors it firmly within our remit. The ‘Bullets’ – Stu Magru (writer, producer & rhythm guitar), Darren Gill (lead guitar), Adam Murphy (bass guitar), and Aleks Podraza (drums) certainly earn their keep, providing the perfect backdrop for Biddy and her face-melting high notes.

Dark Side was mastered by Ian Shepherd (Deep Purple, Keane, Tricky). Biddy & the Bullets can be seen on various tour dates supporting acts such as The Outlaw Orchestra, Backwoods Creek, and Fargo Railroad Co. They will also appear at a number of festivals this summer including Buckle & Boots, BCMA Fest, and Rock n’ Ribs.
