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.

Layer Cake

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.

The interwoven guitars wrap around the listener like a cashmere jacket in a luxurious thread of washed echoing reverb, while the pressing bass holds the architecture in taut reign with drum pushing along the pace, giving the songs their infectious tempo as vocal, with its judicious mix of one or multiple voices, creates a smokey haze that compliments the guitars.

Palms is the second of the six songs on the album, which is available on bandcamp.

The quartet of RoryJayLuke and Wes from Melbourne in Australia who form the garage band Diana Radar released the single Growing on the 13th.

Diana Radar

A track best enjoyed with a beer in a crowded bar, as the quartet deliver their good time rock’n’roll, which brightens the day by its very presence.

The bright guitars sparkle through the song, like a sequined dress, as the high pitches flicker through the ears, while the drum, which plays on tautly strung skins adds to the sharpness of the architecture which in turn affords space and time for the laid-back bass and sliding vocal to create the infectious dynamism of Growing.
