Making music when the kind of music that Bush makes isn’t on top of the charts could be challenging for anyone who isn’t actually Bush. Sure, if rock was exploding Bush could profit from some of that, and their legacy that’s been building up since 1992 (including a decade-long break, which often aids nostalgic groups of Bush’s ilk) helps a bit too. Yet with new album Black and White Rainbows, Bush seems to have showered to get rid of those past nasty bits and hopes to clean up with a fresh towel from the dryer, finding new inspiration and melodies for a new age. How well it will work in 2017 remains to be seen.
