Flesh and Blood Written and performed by: The Introspectators FLESH and Blood grabbed my attention with a playful and melodic guitar riff that leads into verse that's sung perfectly casually. It all reminds me a lot of The Lemonheads - and I hope that they're fans of Evan Dando's similar brand of melodic alternative rock. The verse immediately demonstrates some real songwriting talent - superb lyrics, rhyme and perfect tone. The chorus is understated yet emotional and all the main elements are fantastic without being showy. At five-and-a-half minutes it's quite a long track and with the main riff repeating so often without variation it can feel long. Personally, I'd much prefer to listen to a three-minute song twice than a six-minute song once. That might be over simplifying things a little - this is a great song and a very good track and I can't wait to hear more from them. Oh, and if there was a prize for best band name - Introspectators would get my vote.
