8udDha bl0od created a brand-new super-charged trajectory in the evolution of Folk Rock with their recently released single “Pushing You Under”.
The Brighton-based artist’s vivaciously sonic approach to Folk-Rock is absorbing from the first verse in Pushing You Under which kicks off as an energetically electric feat of melodic Alt Folk before amping up the intensity of the chaos in the soundscape. The unpredictable progressions lead you through walls of heavily distorted guitar until the whole track fades into static with plenty more inventive distinction in between.
Pushing You Under serves as the perfect introduction to 8udDha bl0od’s constantly evolving sound. It’s impossible to predict what will come next, yet, one thing which remains as a constant is the palpable sense that the artist has thrown themselves entirely into the soundscape with no thought to stylistic constraints. It’s certainly not every day you will hear a track which allows you to share the artist’s pure creative catharsis.
You’ll be able to check out Pushing You Under along with the rest of 8udDha bl0od’s Folk Rock EP from May 3rd via SoundCloud.
