Alt 90s Britpop & Folk Rock Converge in 8udDha bl0od’s Latest Single “Wasn’t Enough”

8udDha bl0od

Wasn’t Enough is just one of the singles which feature on Brighton-based artist 8udDha bl0od’s latest EP which will appease fans of Folk-Rock and Alt 90s Brit Pop alike.

Wasn’t Enough may be one of the more stripped-back tracks on the EP, yet, despite the slower pace, the track possesses the same intensity that you’d find in one of 8udDha bl0od’s more experimental Alt Rock tracks.

As Wasn’t Enough progresses, the tone moves away from organic absorbing warmth as the acoustic instrumentals are replaced by distorted guitars and plenty of sonic aural curveballs are thrown in for good measure.

No matter what kind of guise 8udDha bl0od’s creativity falls under, it’s always a pleasure to lose yourself within it.

You’ll be able to check out Wasn’t Enough along with the rest of 8udDha bl0od’s Folk-Rock EP from May 3rd via SoundCloud.

8udDha bl0od – N3<3rm!nD: Sensually Serpentine Alt Grunge Rock

N3<3rm!nD is just one of the recently released tracks by 8udDha bl0od, an artist who consistently finds new trajectories for the evolution of their sound and ensures each is as distinctively captivating as the last.

N3<3rm!nD is an indulgently sensual feat of Alt Grunge which spills grinding friction from the tightly rhythmic instrumentals creating the perfect platform for 8udDha bl0od’s vocals which exude a potent mix of antagonism, ennui, and pure magnetism.

Even though there’s plenty of weighted emotion to drink in while you listen to the serpentine track unwind, 8udDha bl0od still found room to infuse playful doses of experimentalism. Choosing a favourite track by 8udDha bl0od is no easy feat, but N3<3rm!nD is definitely up there with the best of them.

You can check out 8udDha bl0od’s single N3<3rm!nD for yourselves by heading over to Soundcloud.

Too Soon Jokes – Breathe: Accordingly Absorbing Indie Rock

For their latest track, Indie trailblazers Too Soon Jokes borrowed a few stylistic influences from the 90s Alt Rock and Pop Punk and created a punchy genre-mashing Indie Rock earworm which definitely won’t overstay its welcome.

Breathe” was released on March 6th, and the airwaves became infinitely sweeter for it. There may be some monster guitar solos in the deftly crafted track. But Breathe is all about the personable, connectable charm which spills from the accordant vocals.

Too Soon Jokes first appeared on our radars with their Christmas song “Santy Don’t Visit the Funeral Homes Little Buddy”. Naturally, we quickly found admiration for the band’s unapologetic daringness which seeps beyond their track titles and into their soundscapes.

If you’re always on the lookout for tracks which will make your heart feel full, it will be fully charged in 2:52 minutes after hitting play on Breathe.
