Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated today to Blair Jollands. We stumble upon this amazing artist while surfing the net and we instantly loved the vibes and mood of his musical style.
Deep lyrics and amazing sounds that make you travel, the reverb on the voice creates a sort of magic spell on you.
Do you know? is Jollards’ new single out now. “Do you know who you are?” I personally don’t know who I am and this song was able to open up a path to introspection.
This is a very important question to ask yourself, in this crazy time we are living it we better know Who We Are because the uncertain future will put our foundations to the test.
Finally some meaningful music inspired by Nick Cave, Beck, Bowie, highly suggested!
Blair Jollands is a compelling songwriter. His compositions are cinematic in scope and call to mind aspects of Nick Cave‘s songwriting, Bowie and Beck at their heartbroken best. As well as an ear for lush instrumentation, Jollands brings his award-winning sound design skills to his music, incorporating found sounds and samples into his productions. He has previously collaborated with Boy George and The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael, and released albums under his alter ego El Hula. He embraces modernity with classic songwriting in equal measure resulting in a uniquely refreshing confection. He is a velvet throated crooner with enough Dylan-esque grit to ensure there is never any danger of things getting saccharine
