As much as we love to hate it Glastonbury Festival is one of the biggest music events around today. I personally have given the festival a kicking more than once in the past but none of that changes the fact that as a band you’ve got to be doing pretty damn well for yourself to get the opportunity to play there. Which brings me seamlessly to Tess Of The Circle.
Based in Oxford the band is basically the creation of songwriter Tess Jones who joined forces with some other musicians to form the group that you see in front of you today. Joining Jones as of this year there’s Lee Clifton (Guitar) Ben Drummond (Bass) and Paul Stone (Drums) with Jason Thornton replacing Stone for acoustic performances.
The band have got a new album, Amplify set for release this September and if it’s anything like this track then it’s going to be a cracker. If you’re a rock fan and you’re currently looking for the track that is going to be blasting from your speakers all summer then look no further.
Love Is The Drug That You Crave has the kind of strong summer vibe that makes you want to go for a drive with the windows down for no reason. The Led Zeppelin influence is strong, but the track itself is like the best elements of that classic sound with a modern twist. The chorus is a monster and the song as a whole is catchy as hell.
There’s nothing that I don’t like about this one. Love it. Love it. Love it.
Love Is The Drug That You Crave is out now.
