STORMS

Storms are a London-based four-piece whose sound fuses a kind of grungy noisiness with psychedelic sentimentalities producing something of a mellow and relaxed stoner rock.

Their most recent release, ‘Girl’, is a tale of love and hate and the mixed emotions brought on by that one woman in their life who has sent their feelings on a rollercoaster ride, euphoric one moment and drastically depressed the next.

Starting out with a wah heavy guitar, the song has a mellow intro before the first chorus kicks in and the vocals shout out the main lyrical hook full of lovers’ angst, “don’t you wanna kiss me, as I grip your shoulder”.

Distorted guitars and pounding drums enter and surround the chorus picking up the intensity for the rest of the song. It all comes to a close with repeated confessions of “you’re the one” in a last ditch attempt to attain all they’ve ever wanted.

‘Girl’ is a song that I’m sure everyone can relate to, a song about that person you’ve just met but you can’t go a minute without thinking about.

It’s a story of just trying to get that person to love you back, and it’s a story that’s told in an excellent package of noisy rock.

The band will be headlining our next Tipping Point showcase event on Tuesday 30th June at The Sebright Arms.
