Track Review: “Love With Fury” by Collected

Collected are a band who want to get themselves to the New Blood stage at Bloodstock or die trying, having walked out of Essex armed like El Mariachi with single “Walking Target” in their guitar case at their 2018 inception and haven’t looked back since. They had a great run and jump at it in
