New Music Of The Day: Broncho – ‘Speed Demon’

Here’s a song which, according to its writer Ryan Lindsey, is about “going all the way, and then finding time to finish”. Finishing is the key to any race, Lindsay continues, before adding: “It’s also about Satan.”

Lindsey’s fiery Oklahoma band Broncho are perhaps best known for their monstrously catchy single ‘Class Historian’, which was the soundtrack to every Coachella pool party in 2014, and they have a new album ‘Double Vanity’ out on June 17 via Dine Alone Records. While recent track ‘Señora Borealis’ had a downtrodden, bluesy groove to it, today’s NMOTD ‘Speed Demon’ is more bitchy and abrasive – it’s a schoolyard ragaround complete with Shangri La’s-esque strut of lyrical role-playing midway through.
