ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
Concrete Meets The Sand, the new single from Gold Coast based Indie band BLIGH, is filled with swirling analogue synths, tight layered guitars, Queen-like harmonies, pocketed, modern drums and memorable lyrics. The band provides a scathing critique of the coastal pleasure capital's overdevelopment, housing crisis and wealth divide to a swung, groovy riff before ultimately conveying their more positive associations in a psych-pop B-section, soaked in phase and acoustic strumming. Concrete Meets The Sand is the first single from BLIGH’s upcoming, sophomore EP, Tatters Of A Well Dreamed Life, their second EP produced by Blake Malone, known for his work with Peach Fur and Amy Shark.
Proceeding a brief period of pandemic-forced inactivity, BLIGH were known for musical maximism both in the local music scene, where they had sold out multiple shows at venues including Mo’s Desert Clubhouse and Vinnies Dive, and nationally where they were starting to garner positive press from the likes of The Music, Scenstr and HappyMag, the later of which referred to them as “…one of the country’s most exciting Indie rock bands.” BLIGH completed their first national tour in late 2019 and have had several of their recent singles
charted in the top ten on Triple J Unearthed.
BLIGH will launch Concrete at a free show on the Ric’s Bar Backyard stage on January 28th.
