Just as you begin to think “Blood on my Hands” is yet another quaint and quintessentially concordant indie jam, the soundscape is transformed by the celestial sting of the violin. Suddenly, you’re in the midst of a track which rings with so much reminiscence to former Indie outfits such as the Kooks and the Strokes, yet it has been transformed with the lush swells of orchestral strings.
With such a distinctive approach to the guitar-driven genre, Alex Carr certainly hasn’t made it easy for listeners to forget his ingeniously pioneering take on Indie. Whilst there may be plenty enough mesmerism which spills from the progressive instrumental arrangements, it’s Alex Carr’s Indie-style vocals which really bring the emotivity to Blood on My Hands. Which is just one of the singles to feature on his debut album “Questions of Travel”.
