Single Review: Love Collides // Shambolics

‘It’s alright, I’ll be there by your side’ is just one of the amazing lines in Shambolics’ new single ‘Love Collides’. Flooded with sentiments of longing, the heartbreak song will guarantee to make more people fall for the Fife-based band and their music.

The Scottish indie band, Shambolics, released their new single ‘Love Collides’ on the 2nd October, and it’s the perfect modern mix of the indie classics we all know and love, calling upon elements of the Smiths and the Cure.

The song starts in a minor key, describing the breakdown of a relationship. The chorus then opens in a happier, major key with the message that everything will work out okay in the end, a comforting sentiment in uncertain time.

‘‘Love Collides is a song about when a relationship is on the brink and is ‘forever [ever] going wrong’

Darren Forbes, vocalist and guitarist of the band told Original Rock. 

The band have previously released covers from bands such as ABBA, Fleetwood Mac and the Rolling Stones. They signed with Alan McGee at Creation 23 last summer. Love Collides is their second single to be released this year, the first one being the equally amazing Sandra Speed.

Love Collides is currently available to stream on all major streaming services.
