If you’re one of those people who likes to try and be ahead of the curve and on top of any new bands coming through then you will have already heard of Tax The Heat. Over the last year or so in particular these guys have been steadily climbing the British rock ladder, and with their highly anticipated debut album on the horizon things couldn’t look much better for the lads from Bristol.
Fed To Lions is slated for a March 2016 and the first single to be taken from that record is Some Sympathy and it’s a cracker. It’s got that classic blues rock feel while also sounding fresh and crisp. The best way I can describe this track is to say that this is whiskey drinking music. (A good bourbon more specifically, just in case you were wondering) The blues slant and the rock and roll swagger make for a near perfect blend.
The chorus will undoubtedly slide nicely out of your radio while the guitar solo bends, soars and whirs through the final third of the track in fine style. The long and the short of it is that I like this tune a hell of a lot. Classic blues rock influence with a present day edge? You can’t go wrong with that in my view.
If this track is anything to by then that album next year is going to do big things, and of course I’ll do my best to get my hands on a copy so I can review it for you lovely people. But all that’s left for me to say right now is check the track and the video below and as always let me know what you think!
Some Sympathy is out now.
