lyrics - they make sense.
Now, more than ever, with a world losing focus on what really matters, lives carelessly
tossed aside and crazed leaders playing hardball with bombs and hyperbole, it’s pretty
refreshing to find a band like this.
Indeed it’s even rather old-fashioned. Bob Dylan noted the changing times, John Lennon
voted peace a chance, Neil Young was all for impeaching the President. Blurred Vision
merely pick up the baton for youth.
Of course it’s not every band that has such an interesting CV to inform their progress.
A huge viral hit (much approved of by Roger Waters himself), the song was followed by live
shows, various video awards, a feature film soundtrack, an acclaimed first album and appearances at festivals across the UK.
Currently working on their second album with producer Terry Brown, the material has a modernised art rock sensibility with a nostalgic sophisti-pop touch. This, combined with the lyricism that has become the band’s trademark style, highlights a new direction of sound for the trio.
Blurred Vision (who are also ambassadors for New York charity WhyHunger) are, in short, a
self-motivating force to be reckoned with. It’s been said by some they provide a musical
antidote to a world that’s losing its way - and there’s something in that.
