The emo trio of Dan Goldberg, Krys Bascombe and George Phillips from London in England got together recently to form Sad Blood.
Stringing together frequent live appearances, for those of us not having had the opportunity to see Sad Blood in performance with fortune they released a three track single in August – Ultimate Warrior, that is available on bandcamp, which is the only set of songs I have been able to hear.
The distorted guitar appears out of the speakers like the sun creating a mirage on the sand, to which a hushed lamenting vocal is subsumed in a pumping bass / percussion combination, giving the overall sense that the music is echoing around the corridor from a different room and this off-set approach gives the music an immediate appeal.
The extensive use of flats allows Sad Blood to invest the material with a melancholia that reaches far into the heart of the audience generating, not a mood of sadness, more a sense of emotional connection between players and listener.
I look forward to hearing more of Sad Blood in the not to distant future and word arrives of intentions to head back to the studio next year for a further release, for which I hope to be able to provide a review.
