Hailing from South Yorkshire, the Doncaster trio The Blinders have certainly made a name for themselves amongst the UK live music circuit.

The mix of punk politics and psychedelia influenced by Leonard Cohen and the politics of George Orwell are set to enthral you into their song and their message

Ahead of their UK tour, we look back on their debut album Colombia which was released in Autumn 2018. It was met with critical acclaim and raving reviews and the track ‘Rat in A Cage’, in particular, resonates with us entirely. The track is pulsating, it has undeniable energy and instantly transports us to a dark, sweaty room with the band onstage and this blaring through speakers.

The Blinders, consisting of Thomas Haywood, Charlie McGough and Matthew Neale, formed in late 2014 and have since toured the UK with the likes of The Charlatans, The View and Cabbage and in each live performance, brought the audience an intoxicating and intense live experience.

Make sure you listen to the track and the album and try to catch The Blinders on one of their UK tour dates.
