Blackbud Barefoot Dancing Single

Barely old enough to stand as candidates in elections, Blackbud seem to have been around the underground scene making waves for some time. With a Glastonbury appearance under their belt, they now have the clout of Independiente behind them. 'Barefoot Dancing' sets a zipping, bass line bounded accompaniment to lift up the Tom Bellamy and splattering of Ben Otwell vocal range of Joe Taylor, providing for a wistful contrast to the chugging blues edge given off. The B-sides of 'So It Seems' and 'Spiders', shudder vibes of Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice, as the guys slow down and muse upon life with humbling clarity. Blackbud display a maturity and musical restraint that is stirringly refreshing.

4/5
