Oops, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been busy moving house and generally out in London getting into that Christmas spirit. Anyway, back to the usual routine, here’s a great new tune for you!
It’s not many artists that would put so much faith on their future careers that they would film a gig in their early days, playing to just twelve people. It’s an even more brave artist that would then use that footage in a music video once they’ve found success. Still, Twenty One Pilots don’t do things the usual way.

The group, made up of Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have just released their third album, ‘Vessel’, which embraces a darker side to their sound, mixing in heavier drum and bass beats with sharp edged vocals. Its not all angst though, there’s more than a few upbeat tunes, ending with the beautifully soft ‘Truce’.
