Sapphire Blues – Church of England
Sapphire Blues’ new track Church of England is an atmospheric track that captures a weaving history of indie rock within a succinct, energetic three minutes.
One of the tune’s most prominent features comes thanks to a pumping bassline that fuels the first atmospheric tones, helped by crunchy chords. What really stokes the track’s flame, however, is its ability to be so many atmospheres at once – moving from gloomy greyish cityscapes for the ears within verses, to a catchy, upbeat chorus, full of jangly guitars and hope.
Even when searing to the finish line with a blend of pop and rock (and a slice of punk), Sapphire Blues’ track remains a sense of optimism towards the future of indie rock, thanks to this Bristolian 3 piece and their inventive (but reflective) anthems.
