The Amazons – Bloodrush
Ian from Wokingham’s Beyond the Download record store alerted us to this new single.
We listened to it and loved it as it’s another brilliant anthem from this up and coming band from Reading.
It’s from their forthcoming third album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me? which comes out in September.
The band are going from strength to strength and recently performed at the O2 Arena in London as part of a tour in support of Royal Blood. They have their own headlining tour in the UK and EU later in the year – https://theamazons.co.uk/
Small Town Heroes – I Need You
Here’s a new five-piece band that we’re sure would love to achieve the success that the Amazons are enjoying and judging by their debut EP, No Filters Needed, from which this song is taken, maybe they will.
They have some great songs which are played well and they have backing vocals so we can’t wait to hear them live when they appear on the Wokingham Music Club (WMC) stage at the Wokingham Festival in August – https://tommyhand . wixsite.com/smalltownheroesuk
