The Calm Fiasco

When initially introduced last year the The Fear did have a launch date of the 20th of April 2017 – the delay has enabled a further track to surface.

Just Don’t Care Anymore sweeps around the room in confident circles of bass / percussion combinations as guitar provides a slightly psychedelic tinge through which vocal rips in to the ears.

Although they have been around a few years they have always spent time playing live and it was only this month they got round to releasing a collection of songs in the form of an album and Don’t Wanna Wake Up Today is worth adding to the collection.

Backseat Heat bursts out of the speakers grabbing hold of the listener by the wrists and twirling them around the dance-floor in a exuberant footstep.

BLESS. – Easy Lover – Single Review

The English alt-rock quintet BLESS. are, deservedly, developing a growing audience.



Coming out through official release later in the year is the single Easy Lover – and those for sharper eyes and ear who have been with the site for a few years will spot the similarity betwixt an article from 2010 about The Supernovas and you would not be wrong to draw reference as Bless. is drawn from the quartet plus keys provided by Kieran. Though I am given to believe that Dizzo is bowing out with health issues and I wish him all the best and my thanks to him for providing many years of pleasure to audiences across the globe.

With very different texture, afforded by the addition of keys, BLESS. deliver music which like a dark shadow appearing at the door, looms in to the room casting a darkening pall through the audience in which they rapidly quiet voices as the impressive parade of deeply resonating percussion / bass combinations are merged with the two guitars providing the depth of composition with the synths providing the entrancing colouration through which a duality of vocals drift in and out of harmonics delivering a track in Easy Lover that the listener only regrets that it lasts a mere three minutes and fifty seconds.
