Moose Blood prepare to level up with their second album.



Sweet Banger



Brit rock is an odd beast at times. When it ploughs its own furrow, it can be wildly successful on the domestic stage. But to take it to a bigger level - to ‘break America’ - it often struggles. That leads some to instead become tribute acts to a culture they never experienced, desperately trying to fit in to a point where they’re invited for a summer of Warped Tour fun.

But to think there are only two paths would be simplifying matters. Moose Blood have found their own way - a British rock act who work on a level outside of grey skies and damp pavements. A band who can bat any delivery - able to evolve with new influence rather than photocopy, while still finding a familiarity that can pull on the heart strings.

Take ‘Honey’, the first cut from their second album ‘Blush’. Melodic yet never middle of the road, it’s the sound of Moose Blood inking in the pencil sketches of their DNA, splashing them in vibrant colour. “This feeling will only get better,” the chorus chimes. On this evidence, that’s a sure bet.

Give all this a try

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
