Saving a Beauty follows Blue Ranger’s debut album Actual Food, released on Bandcamp and cassette in 2016, and frontman Josh Marre explains in the band’s bio that he wants their latest to serve as an artful, yet accessible introduction. The album’s title track offers a first taste of Josh Marre and company’s attempts to strike this balance, inviting the listener in and showing them the way to someplace meaningful. If the song’s dovetailed acoustic guitars—bolstered by Marre’s twin brother Evan’s legato bass notes and Matt Griffin’s deliberate drumming, with sparing piano accents from Kenna Hynes—aren’t enough to draw you in from the get-go, Josh Marre’s vocals open on a sweetly reassuring scene, the flicker of a tenuous connection: “It’s been a cold one, shivering / you had a rough go, you ok / I asked you.

Saving A Beauty is the title track off Blue Ranger’s phenomenal new album which is due out October 26th, 2018 via Five Kill Records.
