We love highlighting bands and we got the chance to have a look at the latest released Single from The Blinders but with two different styles.  How can two versions of the same song occur?

The Blinders

The Blinders are a Manchester based Punk Band.  The band is currently made up of vocalist and Guitarist Thomas Haywood, Base Guitarist Charlie McGough and Drummer Matthew Neale.

They formed in 2015, touring their local circuit and have spend their years developing their sound and have released several albums in the last few years.

They have toured in the past with The Charlatans, The View, Cabbage and Blossoms.


The Song – Mule Track

Mule Track is the latest single to be taken from their upcoming album “Fantasies of A Stay At Home Psychopath”.   On June 5th, they released the Official Video on Youtube and have already hit thousands of views and are getting extensive support from radio presenters across the land. Presenters such as Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins at BBC 6 Music, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders at Radio 1, and John Kennedy at Radio X.

Now they release the stripped down version of the same track on June 22nd. It has a different feel to a song that had our attention already.

Our Thoughts

The Piano Version was brought to our attention first and we loved it. We loved the stripped back nature of the song with the focus on the piano and raspy vocals.

The Official Video for Mule Track takes it in a different direction, adding layers on the sound.  Echoing to a Sex Pistol sort of sound with the focus on the collective sound not just the voice.

The Same song played two different ways means we cannot wait for the full album.


For More Info

Their Album Fantasies Of A Stay At Home Psychopath is due out on July 17th 2020.
