BLOOD SUGAR - Had With Me

 
Guitar Solos. Can we talk about them and how music isn't music without them. This song has a killer one and it harkens back to a time when every song had one and it makes me damn happy. UK Indie Pop group, Blood Sugar have released a new single that's a gorgeous, melodic indie pop forward take on a break up and I'm here for it. There's an amazing breakdown going into the chorus that treats a drum machine like the star player it is. There are beautifully, emotionally tinged vocals that just make you feel all the nostalgic, angsty, break up feels that you've experienced. And there's a gorgeous guitar solo. This song has everything a break up song needs and yet you walk away from it not feeling destroyed and sad but resolved and resolute.



Lead singer Jack Saturn delivers this song in a manner that's gorgeously done and makes you want to know more about him and what he stands for. He creates this world where he's not mad and he's not angry about the break up. From the beginning of the song he knows that something isn't right but he knows that he's got to do the proper thing. He's hopeful that they'll find something better. Someone that they can be more themselves with because for what ever reason, it's not him. To have someone as level headed as he is during a break up, it almost makes you want to question your motives for breaking up in the first place.

This is an amazing song and I want to hear so much more from BLOOD SUGAR. I feel like I've only scratched the surface of what they have to offer with this track and I know that as a first outing, it's a damn good one.
