The Broadcast is back on tour this spring in promotion of their upcoming album From the Horizon. Their second full length LP was produced by the renowned Jim Scott – a Grammy winning producer who has worked with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, and more. Charleston GRIT was given access to the album ahead of release and it is phenomenal. It is grander in scope than their Dodge the Arrow debut – it sounds fuller, bigger. There’s no doubt that The Broadcast has matured and expanded, but they have not lost their signature soul swagger. It’s clear that Asheville has worn off on the band – you can hear hints of Appalachia sneaking into their sound and in some songs that tendency altogether takes the reins. The result is a delicious amalgam of Folk, Americana, and Soul.
