Sydney-based Bloods’ debut is half pop punk melodious gems like the Blondie-esque Thinking Of You Thinking Of Me, and half in-your-face three chord punk blasts such as BOSS! Cherry is The Replacements at their brattiest best whilst Southern Light is all Veruca Salt 90’s girl-fronted grunge. An undoubted highlight is I Like You, a perfect pop song that lifts the riff from The Breeders’ Cannonball and calls on the services of Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace on vocals.

There’s no harm in wearing your influences on your sleeve, and Bloods still manage to serve up the odd surprise like on opening track Radical, a re-imagined Chilean protest song, and on the beautiful acoustic lullaby, Chasing Constellations.
