Blind Atlas – Take a While/Best Day of My Life

 Release date: 19th July 2010 (Fallen Swine)

Blind Atlas concoct a boozy stew of American alt-country with a classic northern English edge; taking inspiration from Tom Waits to Morrissey to map their trademark soulful melancholia and defining the territory where Americana meets Mancunia… Grizzled vocals and a heart-wrenching lyric sheet… think Ryan Adams fronting The Black Keys, or perhaps Fleet Foxes with a Led Zeppelin fixation; and clearly all designed to soundtrack long, whisky-addled nights of anguished soul-searching. ‘Take a While’ and ‘Best Day of My Life’ were recorded and produced by Christian and Nicky Madden of The Earlies.

Oh and here’s the video too…
