‘Chasing Dragons’ is the second single from Weatherbird’s EP Cut Me Loose. The overall architecture of this track is that of a traditional grunge/rock anthem; showcasing a Foo Fighters-esque methodical thrashing, and scratchy vocal-roars with an emotive hint of Cobain. ‘Chasing Dragons’ is certainly a well forged head-banger that raises its energy levels as it [...]
