WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE BY LIGHTNING THREADS – MYSTICAL WOMAN

Lightning Threads are a bluesy rock band from Sheffield. Formed in 2019, this band has made a name for themselves over the past few singles. Raw, and classic blues type vocals and old rock styled tracks are something not seen so much these days.

This song kicks off with an instant blast of the classic sound of blues rock and gruff vocals. A lot of the songwriting in this song is pretty on point for a track in the vein of Cream.

While making the song fairly predictable and samey, that is what the genre is. And these guys do well to break it up into clearly segmented parts.

The song, however, does go on for a bit too long towards the end. Pushing out that chorus is an idea that works but it is slightly overdone and could do with being shortened a little. But in terms of an old rock and roll style track, I think it could easily work that length as a live track.

On the whole, this band is a fairly new addition to the Sheffield music scene, and has made a great impression. This single is delivering a flurry of driven and raw ideas that combine into a fantastic track.
