Moose Blood should prepare themselves for the big time.



Velvet-Fist-Banger



Crossing over, in 2016, is an odd concept. It’s not like there’s really a mainstream to cross over into. Genres are so muddled and fuzzed up that what makes up daytime radio and broadsheet column inches is more a Champions League of different strands and niches.

If that’s the case, Moose Blood best get ready for that crossover. The second track to be taken from their new album ‘Blush’, ‘Knuckles’ shows a band finding their stride at the perfect time. There’s a quiet but steely confidence running straight through a track that feels both familiar and fresh, with an ear-worm chorus packed in for good measure.

Where their peers posture and jostle for a cartoonish shot at the big time, Moose Blood seem content to just be themselves, like they know in the long-run, they’ll be the ones setting the bar.
