Band To Watch: Blouse

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2011 Band To Watch Stream

I’m going through my inbox and discovering some wonderful stuff. Such as the band Blouse, who were recommended to me by a reader. They’re a three piece from Portland, Oregon who have released a couple of incredible singles.

The first single “Shadow” was released by Sub Pop. It was included on their free Terminal Sales Vol. 4: Please to Enjoy compilation.

The second single is “Into Black” which is the true standout in my mind. It features a catchy guitar riff and a light atmosphere that takes me from the restraints of reality. It almost sounds like Beach House with an extra jolt. It’s a dreamy song that I don’t mind getting lost in for three and a half minutes. The only bad part of the song is that it has to end.

“Into Black” was released on Captured Tracks earlier this year. You can still grab a copy right now.

Take a listen it below, and get lost in their world:
