The Dominican Republic based blues-rock trio Still Eighteen released the single Hit Me Like A Drug today.
A scrunchy british-blues influenced track which slides through the speakers in bleeding guitar chords that stretch like twisted elastic. Combinations of bass and percussion keep the six stringer from disappearing in to a soliloquy as they keep a tight reign on the thread of Hit Me Like A Drug whilst their signature sound of interweaving vocals, which creates which wide their dynamic range, again allows Still Eighteen their point of difference.
I was somewhat surprised to discover that it has been the best part of two years since Still Eighteen revealed new music, as Bullets & Dust, their last release, is still fresh in the mind.
