Description

Blue States - The Soundings

Blue States third album sees them add the sonic effects pedal washes of neu! and my bloody valentine to their axelrod/vangelis template. It sounds like a guitar band but isn't.

Reviews

"Leaves you in no doubt that Blue States are destined for greatness" 4/5 Uncut

"Blue States have turned their abstract musical visions into more accessible pop while retaining the cinematic feel of their earlier work. There is symphonic majesty, sad drifting beauty, lyrical thought and melodic poise" The Times

"The Soundings manages to slip anchor from the downtempo doldrums where so many have been stranded. They still make grand gestures such as the orchestra that closes Sad Song but its also a more bare boned sound with the pocket symphonies of the first two albums replaced by simpler song structures and Chris Carr?s yearning voice. The lyrics venture in to darker waters than previously but Blue Sates still fill their sales with powerful sonic win". Jockey Slut

"Out go Air-like pastoral soundscapes in come tugging bass lines and urban angst. Opener Across the Wire is superb, vocalist Chris Carr pitching his "under the grey skies" cry against mountain sized melancholia. One Night on Tulane stella brew of flugal horns and Japanese extures would have graced any late 80s Cure album while The Last Blast chugs wonderfully in the manner of German band Neu!". The Guardian
