The energy can be felt swarming out of the speakers as the punchy tones of Tried To Quit soar through the room.

Unpretentious rock’n’roll always has a primordial connectivity with the listener and Rackett are deft exponents of the theory that less is more, with the audience finding themselves joining in on guitar, drum-kit and vocals even on the first run through of the new single.

Clear some space, turn up the volume and hit play…

BLIGH – Mrs. Jones – Single Review

BLIGH, an alt-rock band from Gold Coast (Australia), is the quintet of James Martin (Bass), Luc Saint Clair (Guitar), Jaidyns Blayde (Drums), Zahra Whyte (Keys) and Elliott Baylis (Vocals) who released the single Mrs. Jones on the 27th of September.

BLIGH

Their smartly constructed compositions often emerge as dramatic vignettes. Mrs. Jones continues in that vein with a swing-blues one act murder mystery which displays, in full glory, their ability to create songs which disport not only musical dexterity and arrangement but also clever lyrical construct, yet can equally deliver to the audience music that is easy to engage.

A couple of years in to their journey, Mrs. Jones will, with fortune, exponentially expand the BLIGH audience.

The one and only track which is around Keep Me Awake has the listener searching the shoe-cupboard for a pair of black and white wingtips to join in with the retro-dance-steps, while grinning from ear to ear lost in the fuzzy guitar and infectious melodies.

I look forward to hearing more in short order.
