I'm going to be honest and admit that I have no information about Bloods except that they're from Sydney, and that the singer is female. Other than that, nada. But hey, background story isn't everything, especially when they put on such a good performance within their music. From the outset of this new track, 'Long Gone', you most definitely feel both a connection and believability about the singer. Below the straight forward instrumentation and fairly unremarkable structure, you yearn for this woman. You feel what she's singing about, which is something I always look for in a vocalist. Other than this though, nothing much else strikes me as immediately amazing. The guitars screech half way through, which contrasts with the softeness of the singing, but overall, it's a safe number. Still, it's worth a listen, and perhaps even a free download here, if you enjoyed it.
