Ottawa Trust have released a very refined second single and have raised expectations with their soulful bluesy rock release. ‘Love Means War’ is a long musical sigh that paints a vivid picture of love and loss.
There is no introduction needed for ‘Love Means War’, it’s a straight into the story kind of affair and it’s instantly intriguing. Its soulful sound and thought-through hooks grab the listener by their balls and does not let go until the end. It is not as up beat as I usually fancy, but its outstanding combination of harmonies, melodies and percussion make this a peculiar new single that is hard to compare with other musical pieces.
‘Love Means War’ is painting a promising picture of Ottawa Trust’s upcoming career and their future releases!
