There’s been a notably squeaky clean finish to much of the mainstream world’s indie-rock offerings in recent years. The grit and uninhibited passion of times past seemed to be lost in the haze a little – enter the aptly named Hazy Days, with their raucous and unquestionably real rock sound; the sort that makes the classic and contemporary fans alike crave a live show from the moment those drums come crashing into the room.

Love Ghost are a young band who already seem to have mastered the art of writing a great song. Their latest release, Mr Blue, is one that skillfully fuses addictive riffs, high energy, and superb melodies – resulting in a song that feels fresh yet stylistically rooted in the rock sounds of a simpler time.
