Music that’s a little heavier. Check out two of the UK’s best new rock groups.
Blue Stragglers – All Mine (Sometimes)
Sussex based three piece Blue Stragglers have recently released their second single following on from their 2019 debut Recover. Their latest offering, titled All Mine (Sometimes) is a powerful piece of rock and has quite a catchy feel to it on the whole. The lads describe their sound as ‘Fuzzed up, grooved out, hook laden alt rock‘. It’s hard to disagree with that description.
All Mine is as brooding as they come. This is the type of tune that would have the whole room battling each other as the tempo increases towards the latter stages. These guys are making some really accomplished sounds – Get rid of your post lockdown blues and have a head bang to this one. Decent!
Rich Parents – What Should I Wear To The Revolution?
London based Rock band Rich Parents tickled me over the lockdown with their superbly topical debut single ‘What Should I Wear To The Revolution?‘ surfacing as the world went protest crazy. The lyrics are quite entertaining and the visuals are poignant too! The tune takes aim as the selfie generation and the vanity of modern society. It is a really grimy, punk-y tune – with high energy and a poignant message. ‘Fake Turins‘ lead guitarist Scott Custis fronts here – a hellishly talented man.
Powerful work – I wonder what I’d wear to the revolution myself?
