On The Right Track

It’s The Blizzards! But without the gigantic choruses! The monotonic nature of ‘On The Right Track’ never made it an obvious contender for a single, but it certainly shows a different side to them: they may excel in high-energy suckerpunches, but they know how to get all contemplative too. Fittingly, their B-side is the chuckle-worthy ‘It’s Easy To Write A Song In A Minor Key’, and as a non-album track it will draw in their in ever-growing legion of diehards.

Fantasy

The Irish band of last year by some measure, the Blizzards’ ascent is most notable for how far they’ve come in such a short space of time. ‘Fantasy’ offers more of their spirited punk pop but it’s B-side ‘Sweet As Sound’ that proves just what they’re capable, a subtle little tune that builds to a harmony-filled conclusion and is an easy match to anything on the album. The only way, it would seem, is up.

War of Words

Mullingar’s finest release a single that’s not exactly in the ‘Trouble’ or ‘Miss Fantasia Preaches’ league of catchy pop-punk.

It’ll no doubt keep their growing legion of fans placated while the new album makes its way into record shops. But it’s worth pointing out they’re capable of better than this.
