‘Belinda’ by vintage-rockers Albino

London based vintage rock band Albino are hitting us with their new track ‘Belinda’, taken from their whiskey fuelled new album Night At The Chemist.

Yes that was whiskey! Albino’s main aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music.

Their latest track ‘Belinda’ exudes this throwback, vintage feel that sounds like it could have come straight out of the 60’s.

Consisting of Ben Tucker (guitar/vocals), Merv ‘Fuzzy’ Salole (Bass), Gareth ‘gwEM’ Morris (guitar) and Don Gibson (percussion), Albino’s sole aim is to entertain with their rambunctious, often humorous ‘drinking’ music. As the main songwriter in the outfit, Ben is the driving inspirational force, tapping into a deep well of life experiences that draw on topics as diverse as love, deviancy, distrust of priests, historical events and of course, drinking.

Since they began in 2005, Albino has undergone a musical metamorphosis, travelling a long way from their humble beginnings, but now, the off-the-wall band has cemented their style and truly found their own sound. Whilst Albino’s eclectic and multi-talented musical line up has changed over the years, this latest track proves their musical direction, commitment and energy has always remained constant.

‘Luna Blue’ and Their New, Funk-Infused ‘Borrowed Words’

Brighton based band Luna Blue and their new track ‘Borrowed Words’ bring a refreshing, original take on the musical world. The funky, complex bass riffs carry the excellent lead vocals through a stream of rhythmic guitar tones and grounding drum beats.

Tom High’s strong vocals and occasional beautiful falsetto detours, combined with brilliant control and his professional rhythmic guitar skills give the lyrics an elegant presentation, allowing us to really hear every lyric and its meaning. They capture us within the catchy, funky beat until we can’t help but sing along. They are joined by the the bouncy bass tones from Nick Davie securing that original foot-tapping sound that we can’t stop listening to.

With the help of an excellent music video, and the rhythmic sound that this single has produced, you can really see, and hear, the energy and the atmosphere that this band is trying and very much succeeding to capture. It’s an atmosphere of relaxed chaos. The combination of the occasional falsetto vocals contrasting with upbeat drum and bass work perfectly to create an atmosphere of a relaxing carefree, but fun, time, something we are constantly searching for within out busy lives.

Luna Blue’s single ‘Borrowed Words’ is an exciting sound that I can’t wait to hear more from in their upcoming EP ‘Nightjar’, which I’m sure will boast an excellent, energetic atmosphere, and more of the bands mind blowing guitar, bass and drum skills.
