Blue Bendy

Blue Bendy

When I make music for my own amusement the moto is - "the road less travelled hides the new". If I were to ever get a tattoo, this is what it would say, on my calf I think, the least hairy part of me.

And so it is with Blue Bendy, for they are nothing if not experimental. We wish more bands would do this sort of thing.

They are a six piece band from South London via Scunthorpe. And we would describe them as a young hybrid band, electronics and guitars, Olivia's Korg MS20 mini adding one of many juxtapositions against the dead pan vocal delivery of Arthur Nolan.

Supporting Squid at Nathan's new venue in Leeds we were struck by the variety between tunes and within them (much like Squid too in fact). Gong-esque similarities abound, marvel at seat-of-your-pants-roller-coaster transitions with a 5 minute tune, a more frantic version of B.C. Camplight.

Hopefully this has given you a flavour, highly recommended and not to be missed.
