Ever since the release of Tamsin’s debut album Gypsy Blood last year, I’ve been really excited to see what was coming next. ‘Scandal’ is the first single from her follow up album and has kept that country/folk sound Tamsin is known for, but has a darker edge to what we saw on the first album.
A little over a week ago, Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong debuted his new band, The Longshot, with a 3-track EP. As with most side projects, we assumed that would be it.
