Leeds/Bradford based trio CPSD drop blues-driven banger Use Once.
Combining the dusty desert-baked stoner rock of bands like Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss, with an electronic influence, West Yorkshire alt-rockers CPSD were born from an ecclectic musical background, yet when fused together create their own engimatic brand of blues.
Latest single ‘Use Once’, showcases fuzzy guitar riffs, inspired by their collective love of the underground rock scene, and fond memories of their misspent adolescence in locally revered institutions such as Cockpit (Leeds) and Rio’s (Bradford). Chris Dover’s vocals sit comfortably in the forefront of the mix, giving an overall QOTSA / Kyuss feel to the piece.
On the track, Chris says: “Use Once is a mostly fictional depiction of a short term relationship, and centres on the lack of feeling attached to a one-night stand. Inspired by a time in my life when I was coming out of a long term relationship, and desperately seeking anything to feel better about what was happening. It’s a song I wrote not to glamorise or disrespect the other person involved, but to document the numbness I felt at that point”.
