Daily Tune

— 30/07/2021

If you’ve been following NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION at least a bit throughout the past year you should have heard of British four-peace Bleach Lab as we’ve been rooting for them for a quite a while now. After giving us great tracks like Old Ways and Never Be plus a great debut EP they are now back with a brand new single callled Real Thing. Produced by a true icon of the British indie music world – Stephen Street (who worked with The Smiths and The Cranberries before) – it plays out familar strengths of the group but also introduces a more defined and sharped sound of the band. It still got that dreamy shoegazy vibe of their previous releases but also puts their really profound songwriting more into the focus. Songwriter Jenny Kyle explains the notion of the song: “Real Thing is about wanting to find a more meaningful and lasting connection with someone. I had been processing a lot of issues over the last couple of years to do with previous relationships and personal development, and I had finally reached a place where I felt I was in the right state of mind to be open to looking for something new.” Needless to say, the rooting for Bleach Lab continues on our side and it’s a great final Daily Tune pick before we’re heading into the summer break.
