  • Tamsin Quin – Scandal
    Ever since the release of Tamsin’s debut album Gypsy Blood last year, I’ve been really excited to see what was coming next. ‘Scandal’ is the first single from her follow up album and has kept that country/folk sound Tamsin is known for, but has a darker edge to what we saw on the first album.

    It is a rare occurrence to come across a band that formed in a little over a year ago and already producing a large spectrum of solid sounds in a full-length album. But despite the rarity, that is exactly what Blindwish has gone and done. Hailing from Dallas, Texas and establishing themselves back in March […]
