What happens when you take the vocal stylings of Steven Tyler, throw in a little Killer’s-esq guitar, and finish it off the the raw female fronted power of Paramore? You get blindspot, A Boston based rock trio who’s spent the last two years writing, recording, and performing some seriously great festivals and shows.
Seriously, when I first heard this album I was really interested by the different impressions it left. Alexa’s voice has that hard rock quality that could shake a room of 100 to 1,000 people and with the with the addition of indie sounding guitar riffs and synthesizers, their self titled album has a little something for every kind of rock fan. I think the best example of this is their debut single/video “Every Time You Close Your Eyes.” The song itself is no slouch, it starts right off into a straight groove that just sets up the explosion that is Alexa’s voice on the chorus. And the whole record is like that! Listen to the opening track “Sinking Fast” and you’ll get hints of Classic Rock melodies married to an almost pop-punk groove. It’s all really interesting and definitely worth giving a listen.
blindspot is going to be performing at Thunder Road on March 30th, and then also again at O’Briens Pub on April 12th, so Bostonians keep an ear out for these guys.
