Just The Crust 11/10/21: Scatterchild – Tough Love โ˜€๏ธ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Scatterchild “Tough Love”! ๐Ÿ™Œ

we’ve been a fan of Scatterchild for a while now, with their beautiful piano melodies, lovely soundscapes, Jay’s fantastic vocal ability and top songwriting ๐Ÿ˜Š this new song is yet another in a long line of great releases!

a more touching subject with this song, it deals with the harder parts of a relationship and the emotion conveyed in this track is sublime โœŠ building from the start, it really pushes through the feelings that they’re trying to portray and as it travels through the track, it builds up and up til the end where it explodes into a massive outburst of energy and raw feeling! what a tune! โค๏ธ

well worth a listen, absolutely fantastic from the Manchester band. head over to Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/artist/29A7KCgDgjYYadLf0UPXIi to check it out alongside their other releases, or head to YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TO-mQd3er_4 to catch the fantastic music video they’ve done! ๐ŸŒ

our feature for today’s Just The Crust is the brand new single from Katie O’Malley “Devil’s Got A Hold” ๐Ÿค˜

we’ve known Katie for a long time now and with every release she only gets better and better! we loved the last few singles especially “Wild West” and “Taste The Dirt” and we’re absolutely blown away by how good this new tune is! โ˜€๏ธ

blending grungy, bluesy rock with her familiar country-esque singer-songwriter vibe, Katie and her band create a lovely gloomy atmosphere akin to PJ Harvey and Stevie Nicks ๐Ÿ˜Š the guitar work in this is absolutely gorgeous and Katie’s vocal sounds absolutely out of this world. ๐ŸŒ  the eruption into the chorus is massive – organs throughout are just lush, and it all fits perfectly together to give you a full on 70’s witchy nostalgia whilst maintaining that gorgeous sound that we’ve heard with all of Katie’s songs lately! ๐Ÿค˜

one of our favourite tunes lately, for sure! absolutely beautiful song. head on over to Spotify at https://open.spotify.com/artist/6okmBH0CynrW1oDQCaGjSQ to find the single in full (alongside her other releases)! โœจ
