Power rock-pop four-piece, The Blizzards are back with their new single ‘Friction Burns’ now and have just shared their brand new video for the single.

Over the last 18 months of Lockdown, the band used this time to explore their music and work on really defining their sound. Honing their melodic, dynamic hooks and crafting their pop guitar-driven song-writing. A true reflection of their musical identity, ‘Friction Burns’ is the first release of this new era and a taste of what is to come in 2022.

‘Friction Burns’ reflects the absolutely terrifying anticipation of letting yourself go into a new relationship with all the scars of past relationships and mistakes hovering.  Inhibiting you from giving yourself fully, but facing those fears head-on for the right person. Moving from a place of darkness to warmth and hope.

The video Directed by Wolff and the video concept by fellow Mullingar creatives Bronte Photography, their combined dynamic creativity brings the song’s narrative of love and music to life through stunning story-telling and visuals.

‘Friction Burns’ official video, sees the band make a journey from hopelessness to a place of cathartic release and possibility. Called to move forward by a beautiful ethereal song, reconnecting with the tools they are so familiar with but haven’t seen or touched in what seems like a lifetime. The music unlocks the energy within them all, giving them the strength to finally burn the ties that bound them in the past but helped to make them stronger and light the way to a brighter future.

It explores the theme of the song of facing fears and fighting for something powerful in love but also what can only be expected to be a common fear by many musicians during the lockdown, will we ever perform again, and how music provided shreds of light during the dark times.

The release of the new single ‘Friction Burns’ is the start of the band’s next chapter. Niall Breslin aka (Bressie) (Guitar / Lead Vocals), Louize Carroll (Bass), Justin Ryan (Lead Guitar), and Dec Murphy (Drums) have huge plans for 2022. The band is stronger, more passionate, and energized than ever and is ready to share it all with their fans and make some new ones along the way.
