SHANGHAI BLUES

Single: Save Me

Band: Shanghai Blues

Released: September 2020

Musical style: Alt Rock

Shanghai

Blues

have

been

rightly

tagged

as

one

of

the

hottest

new

independent alternative rock groups in the country.

Meeting

at

an

early

age

and

becoming

childhood

friends

before

forming

from

the

remnants

of

other

local

bands,

the

shared

kinship

of

Shanghai

Blues

worms

its

way

into

the

band’s

seamless

style

of

songwriting;

a

display

of

melodic

intimacy

that

knows

how

to

burst

into life at just the right moments.

B-side

single

Honey’

was

released

last

month

and

picked

up

support

from

Spotify

with

curation

in

their

Hot

New

Bands

and

Fresh

Finds:

Rock

editorial

playlists,

as

well

as

radio

play

from

BBC

introducing

(London), and Charlie Ashcroft (Amazing Radio).

Named

after

a

now

sadly

defunct

Chinese

restaurant,

Shanghai

Blues

are

Londoners

through

and

through,

and,

much

like

the

city

they

call

home,

the

band

draw

influence

from

a

plethora

of

musical

styles.

This

varied

palette

only

adds

further

texture

to

their

brand

of

alternative

rock,

nestling

itself

somewhere

between

the

driving

riff-led

Americana

of

bands

like

The

Gaslight

Anthem,

and

the

new

wave

of

Brit

pop-indie

charm

charged

forward

into

the

realm

of

public

consciousness

by

groups like Circa Waves and Blossoms
