      Broncho

      with Yip Deceiver, Glove
      Stick your head out the window and sniff the air: theres a blizzard of badness brewing, and its not blowing overanytime soon. Sure, the political leaders, bullies, and other villains of various venoms are dominating the headlines,but these days the list of troublemakers extends well beyond the usual suspects.From their home base in the Heartland, Tulsa, Oklahomas BRONCHO have a unique vantage point from which tosurvey the sins. Churning out thoughtful, nuanced rock and roll with an art school spirit and a punk rock heart since2010, the bands fourth album, Bad Behavior, finds them leaning into their strengths for their strongest effort yet.Following the catchy, playful vibe of previous albums Cant Get Past the Lips (2011) and Just Enough Hip to BeWoman (2014), as well as the deliberate sonic intent of 2016s sludgy, moodier art piece Double Vanity, the newrecord reveals BRONCHOs fly-on-the-crumbling-wall vision of our moral climate, complete with a reenergized,accessible sound and the charmingly sardonic, smiling-while-sneering delivery of singer and bandleader RyanLindsey.Its a reflection of the current world: everybodys been acting badly over the last few years so we made a recordabout it, Lindsey says. There are multiple ways of portraying something as bad, and there are moments of selfreflectionthroughout the record as though we could be talking about ourselvesbut not necessarily. Itsobservational, like were looking through muddy binoculars from a distance. Its a blurry mirror image of the timesfrom where we sit.Lindsey (vocals/guitar) and the bandNathan Price (drums), Ben King (guitar), and Penny Pitchlynn (bass)are atight unit who have seen their songs featured at influential TV and radio and have toured the U.S. and Europe,including arenas with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, The Growlers, Portugal.The Man, and Cage TheElephant. In the gritty warehouse district of Downtown Tulsa they have carved out a physical place for themselves,an industrial blank space where BRONCHO can experiment with sounds, performance, visuals, and more. Its wherethey recorded Bad Behavior with producer Chad Copelin in the first half of 2018, a controlled process that allowedthem to work at their own pace and by their own standards, almost like a secret club.Bad Behavior slinks and purrs with a sense of lascivious flirtation. Lindsey sings with a mischievous twinkle in hisvoice, peppering his verses with suggestive uh-ohs and ahhs and at times barely pushing out his words to the pointof whispering. Lines like You caught me in the weekend/You caught me with your boyfriend (Weekend) and Igot a thing for your mother/I got a thing to teach your father (Family Values) match the primal pulse of thesongs moods and vibes, and their pop sensibilities create a world where T. Rex, Tom Petty, The Cars, and TheStrokes collide. Keep It in Line chimes along to a driving, pepped-up beat and serves as both the albums catchiestmoment and its closest swerve toward ethical commentary, as Lindseys narrator demands to be reminded of hisplace in the world while attempting to submit to his misgivings. The result is less an act of penance and more ofhonest reproach, an ultimate judgment that is matched in its directness only by the following track, Sandman, anovert yearning for pleasure that Lindsey calls the bands answer to The Chordettes classic Mr. Sandman.The record is filled with references to religion, sin, drugs, vice, and scandal bubbling just under the surface. Its apalette familiar to anyone who has ever turned on the evening news, which Lindsey admits was a huge influence onhim. Through the writing process I watched a lot of CNN, and man theres a lot of bad behavior there, he says.Not to mention that theres a company making money off of people watching their depiction of it all. From anentertainers standpoint I get what theyre doing, calling everything breaking news and keeping people glued, buttaking up that kind of space cant be good for society. Although its pretty fun to watch.Can all this unsavory activity exist without taking sides? Lindsey holds tight to his role as a relayer and iscomfortable with leaving it to the audience to cast their own lot. Were assuming that everybody is coming from acertain set of values, but ultimately thats impossible, he says. Theres a lot of people who think a certain wayabout the world and arent as shocked by these things. Maybe were simply trying to start the conversation. The bestnews is just a report of whats going on, without bias. This record is a non-biased, non-profit reporting on whatsgoing on in the world. Part of its an exploration in solving those problems, on a personal level and ultimately on acultural level.Bad Behavior represents a picture of a band that have crushed their own commercial expectations and are doingwhat they want to do at their own pace. Theyve cleaned the slate and quietly made a return with urgent, bonafidepop songs. If you want to catch a whiff of Bad Behavior, simply stick your head out the window and breathe.
