Just The Crust 20/06/22: Nat Dempsey & the Near Strangers πŸ€˜

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Nat Dempsey & The Near Strangers “Run and Hide”! β˜€οΈ

we’ve known Nat for a long time now, and he’s got such a fantastic discography to his name – so many great singles that sound absolutely fantastic. πŸ˜Š a proper talent here in Manchester and one to definitely watch out for, especially for his live sets!

opening with a real groove to the track, the drums and bass in perfect sync with one another – it starts with Nat on an almost deadpan vocal, suddenly opening up to a more melodic vocal line and building and building with each instrument until the chorus which is just explosive.Β πŸ’₯

his lyricism has only got better and better with each track, this song takes a real inspection upon the state of the world and the influence that different figures have and how they all seem to contradict each other, yet don’t… we love seeing the stories behind songs and their meanings and there’s so much to unpack in this one, we’ll let you figure it all out for yourself though πŸ˜†

you can find the track in full over on Spotify at… and on all streaming sites! give it a listen and check out his previous releases as well. πŸ‘Š

Our last Toasted was sick! πŸ€˜

oh wow last Saturday at the Grafton Arms for our last Toasted was insane! πŸ₯ͺ

Luna Marble Lighter Thieves and Desire Lines all smashed their sets, each of the bands brought out incredible energy to the stage and it was definitely a night to be remembered. 🀘 big love to them all for playing, these band nights only get better and better – there’s so much talent in the scene and we’re so honoured to be able to let them have a space to perform ❀️

we’ll be announcing our next one real soon – keep your eyes peeled for the announcement, another fantastic lineup on the way! πŸ‘Š plus, we’ve got SO many great gigs coming up over the next month, you can find it all on our website at 🍞

Just The Crust 13/06/22: Blue Orchid Reaction – Personal Revolution β˜€οΈ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Blue Orchid Reaction “Personal Revolution”! β˜€οΈ

we’re a big fan of these lads and they’ve been putting out continuously fantastic release after release over the past few years and this is yet another standout single from them! we even may have a lineup that they’re playing but not too much about that yet πŸ˜†

this new single sounds brilliant, they’ve stayed true to their signature sound that we’re used to – really loving the opening bassline and groove to the track, pushes it along so well and the guitar tones are super luscious. as it opens up towards the chorus the build is great, and it erupts with such intensity into the hook, brilliant to hear from these guys! β˜€οΈ

if you like what you hear you can find the single on all streaming sites, or check out the full music video on YouTube at 😊 well worth a watch, these guys are great!
