This week's round-up: New tracks from Troy Redfern, Bex Marshall, Grieving

We kickstart the new year by introducing you to some of the cool thats that have landed in our inbox this week. This week we have rock, blues and indie punk.

Troy Redfern 'The Strange

“The Strange” is the third single taken from Troy’s upcoming album “Invocation” released May 17th. Troy begins 2024 in a blaze of outlaw rock. 'The Strange' incorporates blues-soaked riffs and Troy's trademark slide guitar with a spattering of hard rock. It's all very spit and sawdust stuff, but in this gritty rock groove Troy Redfern is on fire!

Bex Marshall '5AM'

British blues rock guitarist and vocalist Bex Marshall releases '5am'.  It’s the first single taken from her forthcoming studio album “Fortuna” released March 1st via Dixiefrog Records. It's been ten years since Marshall released her last album and by the sounds of '5AM' it's been worth the wait. Her vocals and guitar work are embued with a sincerity that only comes from hard knocks and the experience that life brings. Marshall says this about her influences, which also shine through on the track: “I grew up listening to Tina Turner. Vocally, she was my heroine. Her tone, soul, and vocal range was so versatile. Other influences include Eric Clapton’s cool guitar style, John Lee Hooker’s back porch flavour, Freddie King’s sting, Hose Feliciano’s flair, Janis Joplin’s ragtime, and Elton John and Bernie Taupin's songwriting. I was lucky as my uncle had a stunning vinyl collection, and I was able to absorb all these relevant box ticking blues rock greats.”

Grieving 'Tarpaulin'

If you like a bit of 90s emo, show gazing and indie punk rock then check out Cambridge band Grieving. "Tarpaulin", a song that bassist Jack Hurst attributes to: "personally approaching a sense of self-doubt, and accepting that certainty in life is rarely exactly that." It's filled with angsty vocals, scuzzy guitars and percussion to make your brain rattle. Their debut album is out March 15th.
