New Sounds- New Suede Song!
Last week, the signs of Britpop icons Suede's return to the public musical sphere were made even more tantalizing by the publication of a cryptic letter online by front man Brett Anderson. Whether the letter contained lyrics or was just typical Anderson metaphors, we don't know. However, they upped the chase once again yesterday by posting a free download of the first song to be unveiled from the new record, which is called "Bloodsports" and is due to be released in March.
The said song, "Barriers" is undeniably Suede in mannerism and fashion. It's lead forward by glistening, clear- cutting guitar lines, enormous walls of synth Euphoria, a rolling rhythm section and Anderson's heart rendering romanticism. It's a better comeback song than most were probably expecting, and if it's anything to go by then "Bloodsports" will be a mighty beautiful release.
You can grab the song as a free download from the band's website, linked below.
