Another track that caucht our attention was the first release in 3 years by the British band Into The Deep.

TRACK: Love in Remission
Finishing with the rock/punk/alternative band from Kansas City and their authoritative latest single ‘Love in Remission’ with excellent, female powerhouse vocals, amplifires on red, and enough energy to compensate for the 2-year pandemic hibernation!
