Discovery: The 139

Hailing from Bristol, The 139 are an indie rock quartet whose new track takes on the topic of rejection. It’s called Feeling Blue.

By Graeme Smith

Feeling Blue has a story that slowly unfolds. A stripped-back intro gives centre stages to soulful vocals delivery melancholic lyrics. The track then hits its full stride, with funky guitar riffs and gentle percussion. There’s a sense of catharsis to it all, as if to say “sometimes bad things happen, but that’s life.” You’ll certainly feel chilled as it reaches its reflective outro.

The 139 are fairly new to the scene but having a growing fanbase in their hometown. They certainly have something about them. I’ll be keeping an eye on their career as it progresses for sure.
