Rockford is everything a rock band should be. Borrowing heavily from Seattle grunge legends Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, and Alice In Chains, this three-piece from the rainy and damp lowlands town of Klundert, Netherlands is a step forward for heavy, grinding, slow-riffing detuned Stoner rock that’s as Pop as The Beatles. One listens to their songs and you’ll be singing their lyrics unknowingly. 

Watch the official video for ‘Shade’ below

Named after singer/guitarist Niels Schmitz’ birthplace in the USA, Rockford recorded their forthcoming debut album Broken Records all on analogue tape with Patrick Delabie at his legendary Recording Studio 195 in Wernhout, Netherlands. Broken Records will be released via Grunge Pop Records later this year. 

Here’s what the singer had to say about the track:

“The song ‘Shade’ is about the feeling you cannot trust anyone. That you are surrounded by people that keep you down. Just because it looks good on them. You start to believe in those things and all your dreams look like they are unreachable.

But then one person makes the difference. That one person pulls you 'out of the shade' and believes in you for who you are. Not what they want you to be. So in someway it’s a love song to the person who pulled me out of the shade”
