Today one of my favourite Brighton bands, Gnarlah have released a new single. The riff filled masterpiece is the third release for the band and is called ‘Slave’. 

Who are Gnarlah? The three piece alternative rock band formed in 2018 by Ren Woods (lead vocals/guitar), Travis Powers (Bass/backing vocals) and Jacob Andrews (Drums). They have since released two other singles ‘Find My Design’ and ‘Breathe’ both of which have surpassed 1,000 streams on Spotify. The band are set to play at Boardmasters Festival in August and are celebrating the release of ‘Slave’ with an intimate show in Brighton on the 4th August with support from Ahsoka and Isla at The Bee’s Mouth. 

The song is far catchier than something you would expect from a heavy rock band. With a vocal line akin to the likes of Muse and Audioslave the only way that I could describe ‘Slave’ is anthemic. It is the type of song that you know you would look forward to seeing live purely because of the energy that is consistent throughout.  

Starting out with a series of clap like sounds the song swiftly moves into a rhythmic riff that is pretty much instantly memorable. With an instrumental build up to the chorus the vocal comes crashing in with a melody carrying a riotous tune demanding to be heard. This song has quickly become my favourite release by the band and I more than recommend you give it a listen.
