Bloods - U & M E     Indie, Pop 17/01/2020
Casting off society’s expectations and being free to express yourself, while having the best time doing it, is what Bloods are all about.
Inspired by the Nat King Cole classic ‘L-O-V-E’, ‘U & M E’ confidently sits in a new territory for Bloods. Displaying a slightly moodier direction than past releases, the band have presented a track capturing a nostalgic, love sick angst set against a palpable certainty and fire-in-the-belly, don’t-f*ck-with-us attitude. ‘U & M E’ features guest vocals from Seattle icon TAD.
