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.
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 English reflective-rock solo project Fictonian is set to release the LP Desire Lines on the 13th of November.
The eighth of the eleven tracks on Desire Lines, Mrs Jones, brings together synths and keys that provide contrasting hues of shadow through the approaching four minutes composition.
Fictonian carefully harnesses instruments and vocals with each of the other elements, whilst they are given relevant moment, equally they become subsumed in the luscious textures of sound that drift mesmerically around the room.
Mrs Jones is allowed the space to unhurriedly evolve without overstaying welcome and the listener finds themselves invested in the hushed sounds that softly intertwine, making the abrupt ending even more remarkable as it leaves the audience somewhat discombobulated by the sharpness of the silence that suddenly fills the ears.
