The emo based band from England, Moose Blood have been quite busy. Stepping into the rock arena in 2012 the British invaders gained a lot of popularity.
This year they are hitting the road to tour two albums. Needless to say their journey has been tiring, but these troopers aren’t done.
Their new single “It’s Too Much” leads their deeply foreseen album I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore, out March 9 via Hopeless Records.
Presently, the foursome is made up of vocalist Eddy Brewerton, lead guitarist Mark E. Osbourne, bassist Kyle Todd, and drummer Lee Munday.
The bands gloomy mellow sound is described as something that tugs into your heartstrings until you don’t feel numb anymore.
Bringing forth an free-spirited essence that can be sung around a campfire. Submerging listeners ears with their contagious melodies and upbeat songs.
It seems the quartet has been promising, with this direction.Unfortunately, the band gained a lot of fuss over their latest track with long-time admirers. The reasoning behind it has been flip-flopped back and forth.
The single “It’s Too Much” presents itself very differently. The song comes off as diving back into their older sound, but more defined.
Though the lyrics remain eerie much like previous tracks, it creates a whole new vibe. An odd sensation that can be misunderstood.
The heavy guitar mixed with the dreary vocals, keeps it simple. Yet, the impact of the lyrics are powerful to those who agree. Devising a sound similar to Oasis.
Just last month, they debuted another song off the same album. The track which is entitled “Talk In Your Sleep” which is definitely more optimistic sounding and pleasing to fans needs. Thus, why a dispute broke out to begin with. In comparing the two latest songs it’s easy to hear the big alteration.
Those who love where the new direction is leading the emo rockers, dig the new sound. Prior tracks they released, are said to cater more into the mainstream cycle.
A smart decision on the group’s part to draw in an even bigger fan-base. However, “It’s Too Much” accommodates more towards those who been around from the start. Also going back to the bands familiar roots, influenced by music they find enjoyable.
“There’s almost a circularity to this album when placed next to our first two,” States, lead guitarist Mark Osborne. “The first is full of songs written by enthusiastic, excited kids who just wanted to get their music out there.’Blush’ was more about struggling with some of what came along with that change of lifestyle and ‘I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore’ is really us trying to work through some of what has happened in our lives as a result of doing this band full-time.”
In the meantime, the band will be touring in two months from now. While the album I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore is currently available for preorder here.
The spring North American headlining tour with support from Lydia and McCafferty, kicks off soon. Tickets are currently on sale on the band’s official website. Along with the latest announcements.
