Lockdown may be playing havoc with my emotions, but even if we weren’t living in times where clinging onto sanity is practically impossible, I have no doubt that I wouldn’t have been able to get to the outro of 8udDha bl0od’s single “Paranoia” with dry eyes.
Striking ethereal classic strings join the Indie Rock instrumental arrangement to carve captivating bitter-sweet melodies while 8udDha bl0od’s vocals provide a profound sense of comfort and catharsis I usually look to James Dean Bradfield for. But it’s safe to say, that the Manic Street preachers have never been as bold with their sound as 8udDha bl0od was in Paranoia. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more resonant contemporary track than this.
You’ll have to wait for a little while before you can be emotively stung by 8udDha bl0od’s single Paranoia. In the meantime, you can delve into their diverse discography via SoundCloud.
