Causing a stir in the rock’n’roll guitar band underground, Cardiff’s Columbia have only one apparent mission and that’s to put out massive, expansive sounding, towering, alternative rock tunes. Penned by lead guitarist Ben Rowlands – ‘Disorder’, their first new music since debut album release ‘Embrace The Chaos’, has them with all guns blazing, taking major tips from Kasabian, Happy Mondays and Oasis to put together an absolute monster of a record.
We cannot overstate just how ginormous the guitar riffs are here and how much of an addictive melody they’ve spliced together, a tremendous backing for frontman Craig Lewis’s indefatigable roar conveying a loose meditation on the messiness of modern life, mainly just acting as a great sounding lyric letting the music speak above any heavy meaning. In Columbia’s world, the shameless spirit of good, loud, rock’n’roll remains forever king.
After a hectic year of gigging, Columbia are preparing to play their largest festival performance to date at Shiiine On Weekender in Butlins, Minehead on Saturday 12th November 2022 with ‘Disorder’ released on 4th November 2022, readying the tune-thirsty crowd for this mega-number when it hits them. You can hear ‘Disorder’ on all streaming sits now. Have a listen on Spotify below:
