WineMom’s “Blood Moon”

A Bloody Rock Renaissance

Attention everybody, there’s new kids on the block and they’re called WineMom, a young, upcoming four-piece from Dublin blending the fruits of old school rock, pop and soul, creating one savoury glass of red wine for all young and old music lovers to enjoy. You can undoubtedly hear the influence these genres have on the band on their debut single “Blood Moon”, which they released back in December. This one managed to slip under my radar, but I’m more than happy that I’ve found it now.

It’s safe to say that the Dublin based band have kicked off their career to a great start with this debut single. Although the band appears to be Gen Z, they come across as wise beyond their years on this track, especially their frontwoman Rosanna Harrington, a vocal powerhouse with heaps of talent, with a voice that sounds like it’s straight out of a 70s soft rock band, baring resemblance to the likes of female vocalist icons such as Stevie Nicks and the more modern, Gwen Stefani.

Listening to the song feels like taking a step into a time machine and going back to a time where rock was in it’s golden age. With the guitars radiating a psychedelic, classic rock feel, comparable to legendary bands such as Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, their guitarist Matthew Marshall shows themself as a force to be reckoned with on this track. The bass has a calming, yet upbeat, yet funky swing to it thanks to their gifted bassist Millie Molony and of course, their drummer Reese Martin brings it all together and knocks it out of the park with their unique, low-key drumming style, giving the track exactly what it needs. On top of all this, the melody has such a nostalgic vibe to it, sounding like it’s from a classic soft rock song that came out in the 60s or 70s and not to mention, there’s a goosebump-inducing time change in this song that takes place around the middle of the track, which makes the song even more interesting than it already was. With this being said, the song of course has some more modern indie rock inflections to it as well, especially during the beginning of the song before it breaks into a stunning fusion of classic rock and folk.

On this track, we are told the melancholy story of young love gone stale. The song walks us through a relationship that has appeared to have gone sour, told through the eyes of someone who no longer has feelings for their lover. It chronicles the bittersweet release of leaving a relationship that was once full of love, but the same can’t be said anymore. The second verse is hard hitting, there’s a few lines in here that managed to give me second hand heartbreak. This verse walks us through the gruelling, painful task of having to break up with someone who you no longer love but still loves you – “As the words leave my trembling lips, just always know my love did exist”

Winemom have made a great first impression with this track and we can’t wait to hear what they put out next.
