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.

12 minutes of brilliantly composed trippy guitar heaven with 8udDha bl0od’s ‘’M.:.Y D.:.Y W.:.Y; 17: M.:.D 2 83 N0Rm.:.l’’

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.

‘’M.:.Y D.:.Y W.:.Y; 17: M.:.D 2 83 N0Rm.:.l’’ is 12 minutes long and it’s a journey you will want to go on. The funky vibe going on is so good, the vocals are raw, in your face and you want to bob the head for this one. I feel more confident after this song, the beat just makes me happy.

I would love to listen to this epic track in a band room with a whole bunch of good friends or new mates, volume up high, just all sweaty and dancing our legs off. This is quality music right here. The Brighton boys deliver on ‘’M.:.Y D.:.Y W.:.Y; 17: M.:.D 2 83 N0Rm.:.l’’.

‘’You Were Never In Love’’ is the new hard-hitting song from Brighton’s 8udDha bl0od

With an Amy Winehouse ‘’Valerie’ type start, this song morphs into something rather sad, all about not really being in love even though you thought you were. These are hard to face facts that are a part of one’s life and most of us will feel this unfortunate feeling. 

This isn’t one of my favorite ‘8udDha bl0od’ tracks but it’s still a good song. I guess I have been spoiled by their high standard but still enjoyed the beat and the overall execution. 

The English boys have been on a tear in 2020 and all that time spent in the cabin together has paid off. I imagine that they didn’t shave once and had massive beards but that question will be answered when I annoy them with random questions after they play live soon. Bring on the days of live shows where bands like this can be cherished and loved with loud and possibly alcohol-infused yelling and clapping.

3 songs in 1 with the ever-creative 8udDha bl0od’s smoke-filled new single- ’M.:.Y Vii’’

Late on earth, we’re just doing our time. 8udDha bl0od from Brighton certainly knows how to create absolute ballads that knock it out the park. This is a smokey filled reflection song of the very highest order.

The first quarter of the single ’M.:.Y Vii’’ is a trippy look from above the clouds, the 2nd part of the song is an Americana flown trip across galaxies and the final part is a road trip on the water, swimming among mermaids in the clear blue waters of somewhere exotic. Quite a song right?

‘8udDha bl0od’ continues to deliver and this might be my favorite song of theirs so far. It’s been crafted with love and precision, at the same time it’s so different. I like that about 8udDha bl0od. They are incomparable. Who else makes 3 songs in 1?

8udDha bl0od – M08Y’5 7!cking 7im3 80m8: new-wave sounds

Delving back into a mostly instrumental song, this time 8udDha bl0od produce a more electronic project with their M08Y’5 7!cking 7im3 80m8.

Appreciating the diversity of styles the band presents is both a job and a pleasure as they’re always coming up with new and original ways to experiment with their sound, a risk you take if you’re confident in your music. In fact, very few artists take this risk nowadays.

But not 8udDha bl0od. In M08Y’5 7!cking 7im3 80m8 (which I believe stands for “Moby’s Ticking Time Bomb”), they explore new-wave sounds by employing synths, loops and beats, that interlace as if they were panning out to a dancehall outcome. One technical highlight to appreciate, the synth bass kicking in halfway into the song that adds dynamic movement to the structure.

A hint of vocals opens up in the final part with almost unintelligible lyrics but the effects used to distort the tone perfectly match the atmosphere the song is aiming to achieve.

You can listen to M08Y’5 7!cking 7im3 80m8 for yourself on Soundcloud.

8udDha bl0od remain on the same theme of their previous S0U<3n!R5 1.3 with their new effort S0U<3n!R5 3.9

As a likely follow up to their previous S0U<3n!R5 1.3, 8udDha bl0od remain on the same theme with their new release S0U<3n!R5 3.9, and it’s safe to assume they’re embracing a completely new direction heading towards an indie/alternative style.

Following up on their other track, with S0U<3n!R5 3.9 the band goes full-Blur but this time with an inclination towards Gorillaz-like arrangements, where clean guitars and rap nicely merge, generating a modern upshot of what alternative hip-hop crossed with indie rock did in the early 2000’s. If you follow artists belonging to Parlophone, you’ll know what I mean.

The multi-vocals in the choruses that meld into some sort of choir also recall what the “virtual band” created back in 1998, which was actually one of their main gimmicks, however 8udDha bl0od’s folk-ness adds on such an original singer-songwriter vibe that it’s slowly letting the band be identified within the first couple of notes. Nice job!

8udDha bl0od – S0U<3n!R5 1.3: a feel-good bluesy tune

8udDha bl0od are back again with another surprisingly unexpected tune: S0U<3n!R5 1.3.

You can’t deny how remarkably (and easily) the band shifts from one style to another without exhibiting sound gaps or giving any indication that might suggest they’re emerging in the music scene. With that in mind, S0U<3n!R5 1.3 starts on a blues-y note that made me extensively think of Blur, and throws in some feel-good monotoned rap bars that Damon Albarn would surely craft at his best.

Supported by a gentle choir, the vocals lead in nicely and build a catchy melody in the choruses, while the harmony mostly relies on clean electric guitar chords. The blues solo at the end pulls the track towards a satisfying finale that slowly fades in a volume drop.

Head over Soundcloud and hit play on S0U<3n!R5 1.3.

Folk music at its deepest: 8udDha bl0od release their new track This Small Town

8udDha bl0od have made quite an impressive shift from being full into psychedelic rock to taking on folk music at its deepest level in their latest release This Small Town.

In what emerges as a nostalgic ballad, a violin melody leans on acoustic guitar arpeggios in pure folk style, opening up to the first verse and then accompanying the mellow vocals throughout the song. With the rhythmic section creating a comfortable hammock to welcome and swing the harmonies, the track develops within the cosy atmosphere of a man telling a story.

Although we’ve come to appreciate the varied features of 8udDha bl0od’s music, This Small Town presents us with the opportunity to further enjoy every single instrument, sound, melody, and cherish all the emotions that a tuneful ballad can transmit. A score that 8udDha bl0od achieves effortlessly.

8udDha bl0od cruise into mellowed out overdrive with ‘Dr!ving !n the Sun’

Experimental and alternative rock artist 8udDha bl0od have released a much more mellowed out affair with ‘Dr!ving !n the Sun’. 

It’s Beatles mixed with garage rock and acidic jazzy flourishes with ‘Dr!ving !n the Sun’: a drawn out long-haul drive across a song-route 66 of unexpected chicanes, turns and psychedelic jazz riffing. Again, 8udDha bl0od showcases a striking amount of artistic versatility yet signature trills are all too memorable in this release.

If you’re a fan of increasingly experimental alternative psychedelic grunge oscillating alongside a slew of Britpop and Beatles influenced sonics, 8udDha bl0od may very well be an artist you shouldn’t delay with diving into.
