Nashville trio Karate Blocks know how to kick out a jam and their latest single ‘Speaking Tongues’ embodies what they are all about in a nicely distilled three-minutes.
Big on riffs and energy, ‘Speaking Tongues’ is a raucous blast of rock ‘n roll, bathe in swathes of fuzz & distortion. Conceived around a “a house party gone bizarre” it is a powerhouse punchy riffs and combines a crunchy garage rock sound with an abundance of catchy melodies. This upfront and honest no frills approach has been done by many but this is their interpretation of a genre and era they know and love and it is executed with perfection. The trio have figured out the deceptively simple, age-old secret to transcending influences: just write top notch songs.
