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 at the forefront, so it’s very rare that a group representing traditional blues-rock can come along with all these characteristics and whip up such excitement in 2016.
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. Although, it’s the individual characteristics of the band that makes this music electrifying; 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.
The psychedelic sounds of the band may hail back to the prosperity of the 1960’s and 1970’s and it’s true their distinctive sound may include a few ingredients of the past; a pinch of late 60’s Americana, a sprinkling of Blues, a heavy serving of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a big squeeze of Soul but it’s all shaken up into a brand new cocktail of sound, 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 multi-national (one quarter French, one half Swedish and one quarter American) 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, the whole genre was turned upside down and Blues Pills were charting world-wide and continually selling out larger venues. Now the fans are calling on Blues Pills to present their second album ‘Lady In Gold’.
