Sapphire Blues' "These Streets" is a feral and emotionally raw post punk jag

Sapphire Blues are a trio from Bristol, UK who formed after meeting at a pub in 2016. After a line up change in 2018 the band now consists of Sam Lance Jones (vox, guitar), Harry Beaver (bass) and Chris Thompson (drums, producer). The track These Streets is a feral and emotionally raw post punk jag distilled from Jones' view of the microcosm and macro  socio-political climates around him and distilled from thoughts as he steeped himself into the 1938 philosophcial novel by existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre La Nausée (Nausea).

Jones' vocal attack and sound captivates me. His rawness reminds me of The Jam's Paul Weller a bit. Great song and sound.
