The Blessings "Real Guns"

The two fellas behind Scotland's The Blessings, Dominic Flannigan and Martyn Flyn, just sent over this fresh cut taken from a forthcoming EP scheduled for release via their home label, LuckyMe. "Real Guns" is a booming, high-energy track that finds the duo juggling a load of club-ready sonics of the grittier kind to work out a hyped-up groove. Swelling synth riffs, neck-snapping dance rhythms, and wriggling bass frequencies mash together with an array of vocal, brass, and percussion samples to give The Blessings' tune its unique ghetto-rave swagger. We suggest keeping an eye out for the rest of the EP when it drops later this year.
