Blend the syncopated grind of 8-bit guitar with raw energy and deliciously gravely vocals and you’ve got British rock outfit The Baskervilles. Serving up their own breed of hard-hitting rock with their new single ‘Throwing Shade’ November 22nd taken from their upcoming debut EP ‘Champagne Social Club’.
Taking their cues from the likes of Royal Blood, Bring me the Horizon and Yonaka, the four-piece British rock band have received support from Planet Rock Radio, idobi radio and BBC Introducing, who gave the band a slot on the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds Festival 2018.
Speaking about the track, The Baskervilles stated: “People have said Joaquin Phoenix’s ‘The Joker’ was offensive in its use of violence – but they accept that in the film like in life, the mentally ill and those in otherwise unfortunate circumstances are treated appallingly. Our song ‘Throwing Shade’ touch’s a lot on that right to offend and be offensive, with lines like “I’m grateful for my happy home and the Chinese kids that make my phone and clothes”. People will be more offended by that being said than they are by the fact that it happens, and that’s precisely what the song is criticising.
Gaining more and more attention with every hard-hitting release, the band are showing no signs of slowing down. ‘Throwing Shade’ is set to release November 22nd via Distrokid.
