Another Track from The Blessed Isles

blessedislesI have a feeling that B. Gray’s going to be asking me for this album from The Blessed Isles, as this is the sort of electro-pop he’s known to love; it hearkens back to 80s club bangers, though with just a tad bit more creativity thrown into the mix. Guitars dance in and out of the main beat, whilst a little whisper of a vocal sample often jumps through the main voice. Their new album, Straining Hard Against the Strength of Night, is going to be released by Saint Marie Records on May 20th; it’s going to make you dance and gaze, but in the most thoughtful of ways.

Fresh Tunes from The Blessed Isles

blessedGoing far out on a limb here, but you’re probably not going to find a finer piece of dreamy pop music this week than that of The Blessed Isles. There’s so many elements within the confines of this piece, yet it all comes off as if it’s something so simple. There’s a wash of guitars looping, atmospheric touches and synthetic beats…and that’s without even looking at the polished softness of singer Aaron Closson. This track is sure to be a centerpiece of the band’s debut, Straining Hard Against the Strength of Night, but it should also be a centerpiece to those of you who adore the finer bits of pop music. Look for the album on May 20th via Saint Marie Records.
