“Grunge-soul” duo Tooth & Nail have gone all blues rock on their new single ‘Troubled Times’. A song which addresses the ongoing international soap operas of Brexit and the Trump Presidency. I could forgive such overused inspirations if the music added some originality. Sadly, they appear to have taken their main riff and overall rhythm from Black Pistol Fire’s 2015 hit ‘Suffocation Blues’. Not only that but they haven’t executed their effort quite as well. There are a wealth of rock bands emerging from Leeds of late but between the Black Keys style of ‘Cryin’ for You’ and now this, Tooth & Nail appear to be a step behind the pack.
