The New Bohemians remained close, playing one-off shows over the years, eyeing the right time to record again. Brickell promises "Rocket" is the start of a renewed commitment to the band, with more records to come.
That's great news. Their joy in recording together again is clear on "Rocket," a record that touches on a variety of musical styles with ease. Brickell's effervescent vocals never sounded better than with the New Bohemians backing her. How fun is it to hear Brickell singing "Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, you're the man" on "Superhero"? It's a standout track with an infectious, freight-train chugging guitar riff from Kenny Withrow.
The answer to the question posed by the first single, "What Makes You Happy," is clear for Brickell and the New Bohemians. You can hear it, too, by listening to "Rocket."
