BLOOD SPORT ‘LIFE IN UNITS’: “HYPNOTIC AFRO-BEAT WITH RAW ENERGY OF POST-PUNK”
Named by both Wet Nuns and Drenge as one of their favourite bands, Sheffield-based trio Blood Sport reveal their strong new album ‘Life In Units’ (out now via own imprint Hybrid Vigour Records) and share the new video for their album track ‘Percolator’.
‘Life In Units’ is recorded entirely in analogue and to tape with Karl Sveinsson (Gnod) at Queens Ark Audio and mastered by Dean Honer (Human League, I Monster).
Blood Sport’s sound is a unique blend of hypnotic Afro-beat and African guitar styles, infused with raw energy of post-punk.
Their live set, a continuous wave of sound for 30 minutes, shifts and adapts with its surroundings, its energy propelled by relentless polyrhythms…
