HEAVY WATER (Seb & Biff Byford) - Dreams Of Yesterday (2023) - full

HEAVY WATER, the project created by SAXON frontman Biff Byford and his son Seb Byford during the lockdown, will release its latest groove-saturated, riff-mighty, hip-shaking collection of timeless rock ‘n’ roll titled “Dreams Of Yesterday” next Friday.
“Dreams Of Yesterday” is produced by Biff & Seb, with Biff taking up bass duties once more and sharing vocal duties with Seb, who throws down the big verses and plays the guitars with an effusive energy that crackles from every cut. At the same time, Tom Witts’s assured drumming provides the perfect platform for what is, essentially, a genre-less celebration of wholly egoless music.
Kicking things off is the swagger and thrust of the steamy, psychedelic-tinged single and title track “Dreams Of Yesterday”, swirling less around the North of England than a patchouli-scented Los Angelian summer’s night, a proper rock ‘n’ roll strutter.

Not only does “Dreams Of Yesterday” enjoy the tighter, sharper cohesion of being a second project, the bloodline flows freely in its creative arc, with Biff reveling in the role of collaborator with Seb clearly enjoying himself.
Pulling the experience, influence and craft of Biff and fusing it with some fresh twists invoking from LED ZEPPELIN to SOUNDGARDEN, Seb takes to both the guitar and producer’s chair with an effusive energy that crackles from every cut.

Whether it’s the bombastic, bodaciously thick melodic swamp-stomp of “Shadows Of Life”, the spiky, punk-dipped guitar-driven “Another Day” or the high-energy indie-tinged rock swirl of “Be My Saviour”, the album rocks with big groove and eclectic cohesiveness.
