Brooklyn based experimental shoegazing duo ‘The Blessed Isles’ are about to unleash their debut full length album entitled ‘Straining Hard Against The Strength Of Night’ to the masses via the ever reliable Saint Marie Records on the 20th May 2016. The first single to be taken from the aforementioned album is called ‘Caroline’ and it highlights the bands incapsulating ability to produce a stunning mix of subtle dream pop & impressive shoegazing standards that hold firm to both genre’s original core values. Put simply, ‘The Blessed Isles’ create stunning pictures through the medium of sound.
‘Caroline’ shuffles into the sonic arena on wave of swirling sonic frequencies, addictive guitar lines & impressive sequenced drum pattern’s that completely ingulf the senses from the very first note. Add into the mix those stunning bursts of magical synth swells and the irresistibly melodic chord structures that gently caress the soaring vocal arrangement and we’re truly hearing ‘The Blessed Isles’ full sonic potential.
This is definitely recommended listening …….
