Blockade are back with strong new single ‘Better Off Without’

Up and coming Alt- rock band Blockade are back with a strong new release, ‘Better Off Without’.  Emerging from London in 2022, the bands talent has seen them amass over 40,000 streams and ‘Better Off Without’ will certainly see the band continue to grow. The track captures a classic alt-rock feel without missing the chance to add an empowering message. 


An instant arrangement of softer guitar is built slowly alongside a striking drum groove, laced with timely fills.  The lyrics ‘I’m better off without, Better off without you’ set the tone of the track and serve as memorable lyrics. 

The chorus brings in a catchy element through lyrics and melody. Vocalist Olly Davies has the chance to showcase his crisp, powerful vocals. The message of taking control of your life shines through here. 

Groovy guitar riffs carry out of the chorus. A low guitar riff complimented by huskier vocals adds an interesting dynamic element. As the other instrumentals cut out this gave ‘Better Off Without’ another chance to build and carry an even more powerful energy. Not missing the chance to finish with some harmonizing layers to take the track to the next level. 

Blockade are known for their impressive live shows and ‘Better Off Without’ will be a mighty addition to their set. Fans of Bands such as ‘Don Broco’ or ‘Mallory Knox’ are likely to enjoy Blockade and their fresh track. The combination of the softer alt-rock alongside the message of struggling to make a change you might need is a notable combination. ‘Better Off Without’ is driven by liveliness and inspiration.
