Up-and-coming Aberdeenshire alt-rock band The Broken Creels are making waves with the release of their debut single.
The track, Friend or Foe, was released on April 7, peaking at the top the UK iTunes Rock Chart on the day of its release.
The song takes its inspiration from the 1990s indie rock scene, but the band says its contemporary production gives a modern sound.
The band said they were delighted with their success on the chart.
The quartet comprises Colin Clyne on vocals, guitar, and harmonica, Lee Heinemann on bass guitar, Daz Alexander on drums and Tom Ward on guitar/keyboard.
The band plan for major gigs over the next few months.
Describing themselves as a “collaborative catch pulled from the depths of the North Sea”, the band takes influences from Humble Pie, Bob Dylan and The Stone Roses.
Frontman Colin Clyne is an award-winning singer-songwriter with accolades such as two San Diego Music Awards and Blues & Roots International Song of The Year in 2020.
Radio presenter Kim Wilde described the track as “very powerful”.
The track will be played to thousands on the group’s home turf at Pittodrie Stadium when the Dons take on Kilmarnock.
The Broken Creels performed at HMV in Aberdeen on Saturday to promote the single with plans to perform at the Belladrum festival in the summer.
