Scavengers

New Single: Deadlock
Release Date: 24 February 2019

 

 

 

Almost five months ago, and completely out of the blue, a new band, Scavengers (aka Scvngrs) from Cardiff released their debut single “Bodysnatcher”. This track is only 2 minutes and 12 seconds, but it is just long enough to give you a feel of their fresh sound and enthusiasm. Another track “Merope” was coupled for the release which showed the band’s interest in a wide range of songwriting styles.

Scavengers‘ new single “Deadlock” was released with a well suited lyric video. The foundation of their sound is built on 60’s rock’n’roll but somehow they have managed to craft their sound to make it feel contemporary with simple but appealing guitar to lead the tune. The guitar talks back to the vocals which deliver the message of a frustrating and irritating experience with modern life. “Deadlock” is a song which contains a variety of elements keep you interested. It is still early days, but I’m sure that Scavengers are going to maintain their uniqueness and will continue to stand out.

 

 

“Deadlock” lyrics
Think I stumbled on the motherlode
I found myself when I lost control
Tap the vein one too many times
A heavy burden on a heavy soul
This reflection stares back at me
But I confess I’ve never seen him before
Am I a shadow of my former self or
Am I becoming something so much more?
Don’t look at me like I’m some kind of hero
Don’t look at me like I’m some kind of saviour
Put your trust in me at your own risk
Think I stumbled on the motherlode
One man’s trash is another man’s heartache
Found truth in the overflow
Too late, too much at stake
This reflection stares back at me
But I confess I’ve never seen him before
Am I a shadow of my former self or
Am I becoming something so much more?
Don’t look at me like I’m some kind of hero
Don’t look at me like I’m some kind of saviour
Put your trust in me at your own risk
Oh my god
