Lady In Gold: CD


Sorry Sold Out

Release Date: 5 August, 2016

Very few modern bands are lucky enough to have such a unique, individual and inimitable style as well as blessed with such an incredible voice.It’s even rarer that a group representing traditional blues-rock can comes along with all these characteristics and whips up such excitement.

Blues Pills contain all these elements to create extraordinary music that sounds original and new but respects those long-held rules of blues and rock and roll tradition. It’s the individual characteristics of the band that sets them apart; the steady bass of Zack Anderson, thumping rhythm of André Kvarnström, technical and yet improvisational guitar of Dorian Sorriaux and the sensational soaring vocals of frontwoman Elin Larsson that set this band apart.

Their sound comprises a pinch of late 60’s Americana, a sprinkling of Blues, a heavy serving of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a big squeeze of Soul that’s all shaken up into a brand new cocktail and served into this heavenly new blend we call Blues Pills.

That’s why it seems to be a sign of destiny that the stars aligned for this exceptional group to be born in 2011, only one year later the striking, soulful and organic sound of first single “Black Smoke” was fascinating countless listeners – followed up by the EP “Bliss”.  When in 2014 the self-titled album was released (top 75 in the UK), the whole genre was turned upside down.

Now the fans are calling on Blues Pills to present their second album ‘Lady In Gold’. “’Lady Gold’ is a character symbolizing death” explains singer Elin Larsson of the intriguing album title “We wanted to get away from the typical stereotype of the Grim Reaper” The mystical and dark references of the album title are echoed throughout a lot of the album – there’s the ode to the female ‘Keeper Of The Soul’ on spiritual sounding title track ‘Lady In Gold’ and talks of failed salvation from a deceitful messiah in the soul anthem ‘Little Boy Preacher’. There’s emotive blues ballads in ‘I’ve Felt A Change’ and ‘Burned Out’ and empowering post-heartbreak tales in ‘Won’t Go Back’ and ‘Rejection’. As with the self-titled debut ‘Lady In Gold’ was produced in Sweden by producer Don Alsterberg and they’ve captured on this album everything that’s made them one of the most talked about rock bands of the past few years.
