BLEEKER – SINGLE REVIEW

Bleeker – Where’s Your Money? (Five Seven Music) 
Bleeker - Where's Your Money? 


Release Date: Out Now

Toronto trio Bleeker are going to be busy boys over the next few months but that’s what you get in to a band for isn’t it? To tour the world and experience it’s delights playing a few tunes along the way. The new single by the three-piece, ‘Where’s Your Money?’, is one hell of a calling card to use in each new city but I’d lock up your daughters now if they are of age. A dirty churning guitar riff that feels like Royal Blood meets Queens of the Stone Age gets this juggernaut motoring at full speed and it’s hard, nay impossible, not to fall in love with these guys immediately. Then comes the chorus, somewhere between Matt Bellamy and Scissor Sisters falsetto comes a kind of disco-rock chorus that has be checking their lineage for any trace of a Gibb in there somewhere. This tune hasn’t even finished its first run through and I’m already filing this on in alongside my favourite rock bands with a sense of groove including all the aforementioned as well as Jim Jones Revue, Shihad and The Dirty Nil. I urge you to catch them on this tour if the rest of Bleeker’s music is anything to go by.
