Weekend Recovery are a three-piece rock band based in Leeds. The band consists of Lori (vocals/guitar), Josh (bass), and Marcus (drums). They’ve gained a lot of popularity around London for their high-energy shows. Their sound is fast garage punk with a strong influence from the grunge group Hole. In June, they’ll release a new single, ‘There’s a Sense’ from their upcoming second album ‘False Company’.
The band’s profile has been building steadily because Radio X and Kerrang Radio played their last single ‘Going Nowhere’. This has helped them win a lot of new fans, having sold out their subsequent UK tour.
‘There’s a Sense’ is about the intensity of being in the music industry. As Lori sings “You’ve gotta admit there’s a sense of insecurity / get away, get away get away get away!” you can feel the anguish in her delivery. During the breakdown, the guitar and drums work in tandem to create a fierce energy that would work well in a moshpit.
As Weekend Recovery becomes more popular, ‘There’s a Sense’ is a strong addition to their back catalogue. Its confident swagger makes you feel unstoppable, a perfect taster to get you pumped for the new album.
