Today we turn our attention to Sydney based indie punk outfit Bloods and their stellar new single Feelings. You may remember us squeezing Bug Eyes late last year and mentioning that the four-piece had a new album in the works. It just so happens that today’s juice is the title track of that new album and judging by the first two singles, Bloods are set for a pretty juicy 2018.
Feelings is an empowering anthem of independence and lyrically lies on the opposite end of the spectrum from the previously squeezed Bug Eyes. Whilst the older of the two tracks is an endearing, star-crossed love song, Feelings deals with the rougher side of a buy-eyed relationship and the bliss that can be found in solitude should a relationship not play out as planned. Sonically, today’s Juice is a pretty simple formula. Filled with heavily distorted guitars, a punky rhythm section and an incredible vocal delivery, it’s the kind of track you’d want to scream the lyrics to front row. The Sydney siders have also continued their hot streak singing to Share It Music – a US-based record label that splits the proceeds between artists, their chosen charity, and the label. You will have to wait until May for Bloods to share the rest of their Feelings but this should tide you over.
