Featured The Blanche Hudson Weekend Release:
Hate Is A Loaded Gun EP
The 3rd 7" EP release from The Blanche Hudson Weekend, and featuring 3 brand new tracks. Let Me Go could be a contender for the poppiest thing the band have recorded so far. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl garage groups, this one is full to bursting with pop hooks, jangling guitars and just the right amount of fuzziness... all clocking in at under 2 and a half minutes aswell. In stark (and we do emphasise the word stark here) contrast, So Sick is definitely the most unsettling thing The Blanche Hudson Weekend have composed so far. No guitars, just the sparseness of a harmonium, single bass note hits, doom laden vocals and scraping metal. Bizarrely, this track still manages to achieve a quite "pop" sound, but it certainly comes from a much darker place than that. Finally, Song For Kristen is a four and a half minute Velvet Underground inspired pop gem that builds to a sweeping finale.
With this new EP, The Blanche Hudson Weekend take a great musical leap forward, while still maintaining all the pop elements that are winning them more and more fans with each new release.
