New Tunes from Blood Red Shoes / Howling Bells

Here are two new rock tunes I’ve been listening to in the past couple of weeks.  Although aware of both of these bands (albeit by name alone), I approached these songs with little preconceptions and I’m pleased to say both bands are keepin’ the spirit of rock alive.

Here’s the Howling Bells‘ dense, driving track.  I like the verses.  I just looked at their bio – they’re an Australian band based in London.  We’ve heard this story before!

The next song is by the English band Blood Red Shoes.  They’re a duo doncha know.  This song is pretty vicious and nasty.  There’s a sound snippet at the end of the song – it’s of a passenger announcement from the Berlin U-bahn train that operates next to my house.  I got quite a shock when I first heard this during work.
