8udDha bl0od serves up psychedelic dirt with their Alt Rock single ‘Nevermind’

Whereas 8udDah Bl0od’s previous couple of submissions have been instrumental compositions, ‘Nevermind’ is something different; a three-minute grooving, charming alt-rock number in the style of the Dandy Warhols, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, or Louis XIV.

It’s chilled and laid back, loose and psychedelic in feel with a sleazy, dirty guitar riff that’s almost reminiscent of Duke Erikson’s work with Garbage.

With a bohemian, filthy bassline and a properly salacious rock n’ roll backbeat, all topped by 8udDah bl0od’s trashy, disreputable sneered vocal, ‘Nevermind’ is a proper rock song, all attitude, snarl, and swagger. “I think it’s time I severed my ties” he sings on the chorus; on the basis of this track, he’d absolutely better stick around instead.

Hear ‘Nevermind’ on Apple Music.

Experimental artist 8udDha bl0od has released their celestial gem of track ‘Emerald’

Rising from nothing over a gorgeous fully ten-second intro, 8udDha bl0od’s ‘Emerald’ is a simple, two-minute instrumental piece, ethereal singing synth-strings atop an almost choral swell of background chords. It’s melancholic yet beautiful, tranquil, peaceful, and uplifting all at once, with an element of hope that transcends ‘instrumental’ or ‘ambient’ genre-typing.

It’s almost Gregorian chant-like in places, orchestral and practically hymnal, inspiring and graceful, with an elegance and appeal that enchants, captivates and enthrals.

If music could have a colour, this one would indeed, definitely, be emerald.

UK Alt artist 8udDha bl0od has released their enticingly chilling ambient soundscape “The Lost Pleiad”

Aural enigma 8udDha bl0od has unleashed yet another enticingly chilling soundscape on the airwaves with their latest release “The Lost Pleiad”.

It takes an unholy amount of talent to create an experimental track which offers instant magnetic appeal, but that’s exactly what 8udDha bl0od achieved with his ambiently beguiling single. The tones may have bordered on celestial but didn’t mean that 8udDha bl0od had to hold back on his almost Machiavellianly mischievous ingenuity.

From start to finish, The Lost Pleiad was mesmeric and all-consuming. Around the inventive electronic effects, you’ll find sporadic offerings of angularly picked guitar strings and tranquil pools of reverb which will convince you to hit play time and time again.

There’s no adjective more fitting for The Lost Pleiad than stunning. As always, we can’t wait to hear what 8udDha bl0od has in the pipeline.

8udDha bl0od – Ophiuchus: Serafin: Transfixingly Avant-Garde Progressive Alt Rock

Ophiuchus: Serafin is the latest single to be released from the immeasurably ingenious aural alchemist 8udDha bl0od. If any artist could be described as the modern-day equivalent to The Residents, it’s 8udDha bl0od

The Brighton-based artist may constantly switch up their sound with their new releases, but you can usually rely on a transfixing level of avant-garde accessible chaos. The accordantly rhythmic disarray in Ophiuchus: Serafin certainly didn’t disappoint.

Within Ophiuchus: Serafin, you’ll find nuances of Psych Rock, Surf Rock, No Wave and plenty more. The ten-minute extended track may make some dramatic tonal shifts and throw some discord your way, but each progression is as indulgent as the last.

If there’s an artist we’re grateful to have discovered this year, it’s 8udDha bl0od with their infinitely wild imagination when it comes to orchestrating soundscapes.

You can check out Ophiuchus: Serafin which was released on July 20th for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

8udDha bl0od – SUm 0f the !x|xi gl17ch35 & 7h3 x!i 73ll7A!L 51gn5 0f 5p3c7R3 SARk0pH.:.rgU5

8udDha bl0od

Brighton-based experimental artist 8udDha bl0od has a tendency to leave us transfixed by their constantly evolving sound. With their upcoming release “SUm 0f the !x|xi gl17ch35 & 7h3 x!i 73ll7A!L 51gn5 0f 5p3c7R3 SARk0pH.:.rgU5” they’ve left us emotionally stung and aurally enamoured once more.

In their usual style, 8udDha bl0od ensured that the track carried an arsenal of curveballs which will throw you from the accordance you have settled into.

As the track kicks off, there’s something incredibly piercing about the artful tone and tempo despite the light textures and transcendent air which breathes around the slightly psychedelic progressions in the ethereally resolving soundscape.

Halfway through the 7-minute track, SUm 0f the !x|xi gl17ch35 & 7h3 x!i 73ll7A!L 51gn5 0f 5p3c7R3 SARk0pH.:.rgU5 takes an unexpected turn and veers in the direction of Lo-Fi Brit Pop which any fans of Blur will appreciate. But the evolutions in 8udDha bl0od’s track doesn’t end there. To fade out, 8udDha bl0od uses a haunting cinematic neo-noir outro which dissipates into the sound of rolling waves.

We needed no more proof that 8udDha bl0od was one of the most talented underground artists around in 2020, but with their latest single, he delivered yet another undeniable affirmation of his pioneeringly astounding talent.

SUm 0f the !x|xi gl17ch35 & 7h3 x!i 73ll7A!L 51gn5 0f 5p3c7R3 SARk0pH.:.rgU5 is due for release on July 5th. You’ll be able to check it out yourselves via SoundCloud from the date of the release.

8udDha bl0od go old school 70’s with laid-back winner ‘’81llY 8lU3 800g13 0n D0wn 2 m3’’

I feel like I’m in a movie for this one. UK’s ‘8udDha bl0od’ create another masterpiece and are in inspired form with ‘’81llY 8lU3 800g13 0n D0wn 2 m3’’ aka Boogie On Down. 

With a tie-dye shirt on, red-shaded sunglasses stuck to my sunburnt face and a Bob Marley cigarette dangling between my chapped lips, this is the kind of eargasm-music that gets you in the mood for life. Forget all the nonsense illuminating from the TV new channels of 2020 and turn this song up loud.

This is real music, with a funky bass line for days and a kick-ass drumline. The vocals are spacey-fied, I feel like I’m in the music video with the band, dancing along with a goofy grin on my face. This is how good music should make you feel right? This could be ‘8udDha bl0od’s’ signature song that propels them into a world we can only imagine.

8udDha bl0od from Brighton implore us to ‘’Listen To The Music’’

You gotta save the olive. You gotta listen to the music. This is the message from the boys who reside in one of the UK’s most interesting places- Brighton- so we should listen. 

Melodic riffs and spacey vocals is what the guys are known for and they certainly have a good vibe going for this one. The message is simple, listen to the music and don’t get caught up in the other stuff that can hold you back. Hide your love until you meet the right person too. I love the way this song starts and the rhythm is constant throughout- super mellow and bass-filled. 

‘’Listen To The Music’’ is the new release from Brighton boys ‘8udDha bl0od’ who riff it up on this cool track. A good song with a real message, this one will be played loud all over the UK and the world hopefully. I’d say that this kind of music is enjoyed most at full voltage with an ice cold beverage of your choice. 

This is a funky band who put their heart and soul into everything they do. Lay back and enjoy.

You can blow my mind. This song might have actually done that. I feel like I am above the clouds right now after listening to this groovy track and I’ve been drinking water and orange juice all day. This is the latest release from the hand-working English band and they are on their best form here.
