Blues Pills - Lady In Gold (2016)

Using the mystic sounds of the late 60’s and early 70’s as their base, the Blue Pills continue to blend a sweet concoction of blues-rock on ‘Lady In Gold’.The title track gets things off with a fist in the air rock anthem. The droning keyboards form the backdrop for the electric vocals of Elin Larsson as the song builds up to the chorus. Dorian Sorriaux’s guitar is soaked in overdriven furry fuzz and bleeds reverb and swooshing phaser giving off a strong psychedelic vibe.
While there is no denying that the Blue Pills have a love affair for the glory days of psychedelic rock and soul, they make this genre all their own with inventive melodies and hungry rhythms that seek to nest within the essence of your being. This is hammered home on
the space rocking “Little Boy Preacher” and the tripped out “Elements and Things”. Elin channels the scorching tones of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick with a hint of Adele, yet her voice is all her own and it is glorious.
