LEXINGTON, Ky. — Central Kentucky rock n’ rollers C2 & The Brothers Reed are back with a new song in No Pressure.”
The track is the band’s first release since 2016’s Weigh Station Tour: Exit B and was partially recorded in Louisville at La La Land before being mastered at Abbey Road Studios—yes, THE Abbey Road—in London.
Standing out on “No Pressure” is the band’s versatility behind the screeching vocals of Cameron Clark, which changes from climactic fury to interludes from keyboardist James Weishar at the flip of a switch, which gives off a bit of a Low Cut Connie feel. The band has always had a very palpable live feel even to their recordings with “No Pressure” being no exception. To their credit, C2 have always had a flare for the dramatic, with that tendency being further amplified this go around by the connection from across the pond.
As lead vocalist/bassist Cameron Clark sings, “Get a hold on it or it gets a hold on you.” By all indications it appears that C2 & The Brothers Reed have a firm hold on the wheel as they speed down the road to success. Destiny lies in their hands, and they appear more poised than ever to make the most of it.
No pressure, but you can listen to “No Pressure” below.
“No Pressure” made its radio debut on April 29 when it appeared on episode 66 of Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio. Listen to the archive of that show here. C2 also released a short film going along with the song, which you can watch below.
