Brass Against

A friend recently showed me this band and I’ve been bumpin’ their mash-up cover of “Nobody Speak / Bullet in the Head” for a week straight. Brass Against is a politically charged big brass band that specializes in Rage Against the Machine covers. The lead singer, Sophia Urista’s voice perfectly parallels Zack de la Rocha and captures the same intensity and angst.

If Rage Against the Machine feels like smashing a car with a sledgehammer, Brass Against feels like walking down the middle of a boulevard in a floor length mink with a baseball bat, and causing accidents from all traffic swerving around you.
