Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
"Technology is a reaction to our last record, Automatic," explains Don Broco frontman Rob Damiani. "We wrote that album as a test of our traditional songwriting abilities, but Technology was all about keeping ourselves on our toes. For this record we didn't set any rules, it just had to feel good." That was the goal behind Don Broco's third studio album, yet the result is something much more than just an inventive, constantly surprising album. Filtering their charismatic ‘80s pop-inflected rock seamlessly, almost restlessly, through metal, funk and electronics, it also happens to the best of their career.
In many ways, Technology is custom made to conquer big spaces. To nail the enormous sound they were chasing, the band sought the services of producers Dan Lancaster (Blink-182, Good Charlotte) and Grammy Award winning Jason Perry. The outcome is Don Broco as you've never heard them before. "People think we're just good time guys," says drummer/vocalist Matt Donnelly. "But that's always been only one side of our personality." For proof, look no further than the complex thematic fabric that makes up Technology. They still mix massive hooks and brilliant melodies with wry observational lyrics, but this time they want to make you think bigger and more critically too.
"This record gives a deeper and more varied understanding – of what's going on with us," concludes Rob. "For me, the exciting thing is that we're always changing." Based on this evidence, long may that continue.
