Sounds | Blues Pills, Kiss My Past Goodbye
Derde single van Blues Pills doet aan als een goede Black Mirrors op een funky gitaarrifje. Ook de psychedelische invloeden en rauwe rock refereren naar één van onze favoriete BE bands. Gitarist Zack Anderson bevestigd: "'Kiss My Past Goodbye' is a song full of raw power, funky riffs, and wild drumming. It's a clear message about moving on, staying true to yourself, and not dwelling on your past."

The history of Blues Pills can seem simple. The rock quartet formed in the Midwest in late 2011 by the bands songwriters Zack Anderson and Elin Larsson went straight from playing at dirty, crowded bars to play at some of the biggest festivals such as Download, Rock am Ring and Wacken Open Air. A true success story. Or? Not really. Under the layers of heavy psychedelic blues rock and Elin Larsson’s soulful and powerful voice, the core of Blues Pills has always been the restless for change. Change in the human mind and the musical influences the embraced themselves with, from blackened soul to the trippy rides through 60s garage rock music and the devils blues. During their break Blues Pills has been through some kind of reincarnation. A reincarnation that lead to a new self produced and recorded album summer 2020 mixed by Grammy Award winning Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, Adele, Black Sabbath, Rival Sons, Hozier et al).
If you were blazed by heaviness of their first self titled album, and tripped to the psychedelic soul of Lady In Gold (#1 Germany) you won’t be immune to the effects of this third dose of pills. Empowered by the definition of a cool bass player Kristoffer Schanders, their banana loving drummer André Kvarnström, Elin Larssons haunting voice and Zack Anderson now on lead guitar the band has gone back to their roots. Back to the raw power of rock’n’roll and blues with pinch of soul.
