Hailing from Santa Clara, CA, Blood On The Tracks is an up-and-coming three piece rock outfit who have plenty to show for their existence of less than a year. The bands influences come from bands like Muse, The Mars Volta, Jimmy Eat World and U2 and their sound comes from a mix of those bands as well as a sound like that of The Strokes and even Green Day.
On the bands debut 6 song EP they define their sound with mild to up beat songs. On the track “Tonight” the mix of indie guitars and a soft bass line flow through the speakers along with soft vocals. “Love Is Dead” is a catchy track with a nice chorus and some guitar effects to add depth to the song. On the track “Perfect” they mix in some piano and a stronger bass line for a song that differs from the others on this EP.
Blood On The Tracks are paving the road to a bright future. Their sound doesn’t compare to their influences as of yet but with some time on the road and more writing they can accomplish this task rather quickly. Check out this EP for a great indie band that isn’t following trends but rather making a new one.
