SOUL BLIND – ” Third Chain “

Posted: November 6, 2021 in MUSIC

The fresh-faced rockers in Soul Blind must’ve been babies in the ’90s, but their sound is utterly immersed in that decade’s different varieties of guitar music. In Soul Blind’s heavy blur, you can detect echoes of all sorts of ’90s bands: Ride, Smashing Pumpkins, the Catherine Wheel, Quicksand, Deftones. But when the band is playing live at gut-liquefying volumes, you’d be well-advised to stop playing spot-the-influence and to let the bittersweet roar sweep you away. Like those ’90s bands, Soul Blind understand the melancholy power that you can conjure when you combine sighing, downcast melodies with overwhelming pedal-stomp riffs.

These guys’ sound is awesome! Great blend of shoegaze and grunge. Can’t wait to hear what comes next!, “Bands like Failure, Hum, Sunny Day Real Estate, My Bloody Valentine, and Deftones all influence our sound,” Soul Blind bassist/vocalist Cen told us last year when we first profiled the then new band. “We wanted to make music that captured the sound of our youth while adding our own modern touch to it.”
