Rhythm and Blues and Soul: Clairy Browne & the Bangin’ Rackettes
Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes hail from Australia since 2009. Listen to the music of this gal, close your eyes and you will find yourself in the 50s of the twentieth century. In Clairy Browne’s music you hear the love for old-school Rhythm and Blues, Rock ‘n Roll, Soul and Doo-wop mixed into a cocktail made by Clary Browne.
With her harmonizing girl group the Bangin’ Rackettes she brings thrilling songs and exciting live shows. Like “Baby Caught the Bus”, a swinging song that is musically similar to the work of Big Maybelle. Clairy Browne also reminds me of Etta James rhythmic songs like “Tell Mama” or Ruth Brown’s “Wild Wild Young Men”.
Love for Rhythm and Blues and Soul
“Vicious Cycle“ is a song that reminds you of the vintage 1950 nightclubs where Etta James used to perform. It is great the love for Rhythm and Blues and Soul is still alive. The story of this group starts in 2009 over the mutual love for this great music. Clairy and the Bangin’ Rackettes began rehearsing in an abandoned coffin factory called “The Pound”. The band found a solid line up and began playing sold out shows in small bars and clubs around Melbourne.
Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes album and tour
Clairy’s debut album “Caught By The Bus”, is a mix of heart-wrenching doo-wop, noir theatrics, party attitude and tough-as-nails soul. This year Browne continued to record songs which resulted in the release of her single “Jenny”. Expect big things of Clairy Browne and the Bangin´Rackettes in 2015 we will hear a lot of new songs, new costumes, better hair and lots of soul. We are really looking forward.
