This weeks Song of the Week is the latest single by Southampton Brit-rock quartet Regent.
Regent burst through the clouds with a beam of mellifluous guitars, anthemic choruses and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, the Southampton quartet delivers a shot of classic songwriting from another era. Hallmarked with the swagger and sonics of 90s flag bearers like Ocean Colour Scene, Oasis and The Verve, ‘Time To Loose The Blues’ swiftly follows ‘I Told You So’ and ‘Again’ as their third single of 2020 and finds them in fighting form.
Taking inspiration from the seminal songbooks of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones and the masterful melodies of their many Brit Pop acolytes, Regent revel in the works of those past masters and carry their mantle on to a new generation. With a string of accomplished singles to their name already, the four-piece have received airplay from BBC stations nationwide and received support across the blogosphere with Spill Magazine praising them as: “a great example of new British rock ‘n’ roll, Britpop for a post-Brexit generation.”. Already taken to the hearts of their devoted local fanbase, Regent is now well accustomed to sell-out shows in Southampton, with word fast spreading to other corners of the UK and beyond too.
