You know that feeling when you just need the right kick to get you started? When you’re looking for that cut-loose sound that sets you free? Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. Here to deliver that charge is Toronto’s One In The Chamber with their vigorous new single, “Blow”!
Their explosive rock-fuelled debut EP released in 2018, I’ve Got Something To Say… was nothing short of impressive, having received much praise by some of Canada’s biggest music blogs – and for good reason. “Blow”, released on March 27, 2020, continues that fiery momentum, as a standalone single.
While it remains consistent with the OITC ‘sound’, the single exhibits something of a stronger, more organic impression in terms of cohesive songwriting. The essence of their sound remains totally intact, however “Blow” is more concentrated than previous releases, offering a thicker sense of chemistry from a band that’s already dripping in it.
The boys make it seem so effortless. Everything from Mike Biase’s rowdy vocal style to Christian Dotto’s crushing bass groove are on point. The song cruises on with a hardy chug. Where “Blow” really bangs is in Gerrod Harris’s tight and restrained work behind the kit, firing off in tandem with those meaty riffs. That bridge into Cecil Eugene’s rippin’ solo though? I’m bloooown away!
Overall, the song rides an undeniably catchy rhythm, and I can’t even count how many times the bridge and solo got stuck in my head! As if OITC’s infectious brand of rock wasn’t addicting enough, “Blow” gets you hooked and leaves you craving for more!
