Toronto Blessings album, “Asleep,” will keep you awake for days.
The album feels a little aggressive and in your face but it’s not a problem. Music is like that sometimes. Life is not all rainbows and sunshine and neither is music. Case in point – Toronto Blessings is brutally honest with their lyrics and music.
Their music is more punk/alternative than anything else. The band used to be in a heavy metal band – Cavorts. Apparently, they got bored and wanted to do something different. So Toronto Blessings was born. You can still hear a bit of the metal influences. Maybe it’s the loudness . . .
You would think that their hometown is Toronto. However, Toronto Blessings are not from Toronto. They are originally from Barnsley in South Yorkshire, England.
If we end up renovating our bathroom, I’m going to play this album. Dismantling the bathtub is going to require some aggression and a sledgehammer. Toronto Blessings is perfect for destroying things with sledgehammers and still being thoughtful about the process.
