Still clueless as to whether Blank Body is a he or she, I’ve concluded the faceless electronic producer probably isn’t a human nor a robot or a ghost as I previously guessed but in fact an angel. From the commencing wind chimes I knew this was going to be a gorgeous track, but nothing could have prepared me for the divine outer body experience that would follow. Listen and be converted.
As someone who currently and regularly works weekends I can relate to this song. This Seattle band describe themselves as ‘pop-punk-pop’. Their bio is worth a read and is much more cutesy and entertaining than anything I could muster.
I love how loud this Manchester rock group sound, especially those intense post-chorus strums (yes, Hannah is a band not a person, and as far as I can tell none of the members are called Hannah either. Strange, I know.) Their entire full-length As The World Turns is free to stream on Bandcamp.
When does noise rock become simply noise? Judging from the sour shrieking at the beginning I was inclined at first to think this was the latter, but then that groovy guitar riff entered the mix and won me over. Approach with an open mind.
Fuzzy guitars and sparkly synths make up the backdrop of this bustling funk rock tune. If the chorus doesn’t get your shoulders moving, see a doctor because nothing will. Apparently, there are two couples in this band. They’re basically an indie Abba.
