This week's track submission is from critically acclaimed Dutch five piece "Black Operator".
From my first listen I knew I had to have this track on a" Million Miles" playlist... The dirty roots'y rock and the dark tales and murder ballads get me every time... I can just picture it - a soundtrack - an old car on a forgotten hi-way...a perfect place to commit the perfect crime...
"Marita" had me firing on all cylinders from - the get - go, with it's gritty, old school rock influences and Indie prowess. The new release hasn't just got my attention though. With huge success, it respectfully made it's way into the Dutch Indie top 10, not unlike their first release,"Mr. Preacherman" sitting at the National number two status on the Alt/Indie charts. I must be honest though, I'm itching to see what's in store from the upcoming album, and found it to be a real teaser...(that's a compliment - by the way) Like a kid chasing a second serve of his Ma's favourite home cooking...
If these two tracks are anything to go by - the debut album is gonna be a killer.
