Portishead – great band with great music

I will start off my blog by writing up a short article on Portishead. They are one of my favorite bands ever. Not just because they are from UK, like me, but because they create some very interesting music.

Great band worth listening – Portishead

If you haven’t heard about Portishead, they are a trip-hop band that hails from Bristol. Band though is name after Portishead, a town near Bristol.

Many different songs from this band are worth mentioning. Three albums were released by them and I enjoy listening to songs from all three of them. Song that I linked to above is called “Roads”. It has hauntingly beautiful melody, lyrics with deep meaning and the voice of Beth Gibbons rounds it all off quite nicely. For me the song clearly talks about the dangers that the human kind faces in the form of climate change, resource depletion, war, mass migration, etc.

There are other songs with more lighter themes. “Elysium” has a bit more faster beat to it, as you can see from the link above. I really recommend that you give Portishead a listen to. They are quite amazing band and you will surely enjoy their music. Let me know once you listen some of their stuff, what your opinion of them is.
