Track Of The Day 1 – Death Rattle – ‘The Blows’ (Free Download)


Let’s kick of the week with a fantastic free download from hypnotic London electronic duo Death Rattle. ‘The Blows’ sounds like Kate Bush running up that hill to escape Dave Gahan who’s intent on indulging in a quick game of master and servant. It certainly has a killer chorus and is rather less dystopian than their previous work but still has that relentless, dark, driving undercurrent.  The only thing pear-shaped about this track is the ‘oud’ played by Kareem Samara, which is described by the band as as a warm up to their second EP release due out in April.
