Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Blake Collins. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked the vintage vibes of his music.
The music proposed by this artist makes you think of the great bands of the past … the Beatles in particular.
A journey into the 60’s that, however, for how the arrangements are conceived, manages to be modern.
Good vibrations are felt when listening to this music and you feel immediately transported in front of the fast-food Arnold’s of Happy Days and while you are sipping a milkshake sitting in your Cadillac you whistle to a beautiful girl walking nearby.
This music is like an old Polaroid photo that you import into Photoshop and apply some modern filters to it.
This approach that marries vintage with modern style is in my opinion the strength of this artist who manages to create a world of his own that lives in this temporal limbo.
The sounds chosen are beautiful and the general quality of the production is impeccable.
The mix is very well done and every sound element finds the right space in an enviable sound balance.
I’m Not Gonna Take It Anymore is Blake Collins’s Single Out Now!
An eclectic artist with a clear vision in his head!
Blake Collins is an American-British indie rock singer-songwriter with poetic lyrics, impassioned vocals, and an honest, emotive performance often compared to bands like The Beatles, The Kinks and The Beach Boys, as well as solo artists like Emitt Rhodes and Harry Nilsson. He writes his music from an intimate and personal perspective, crafting engaging narratives with catchy melodies, lush harmonies and memorable hooks to achieve pop perfection that speaks to universal emotion and experience.
Quote: ” ‘I’m Not Gonna Take It Anymore’ is the third single from my forthcoming full-length album, “There’s Nowhere Like Here.” Now available on all major streaming platforms, this song nestles you in the musical backdrop of high-energy drums, bitingly groovy piano and reverb-soaked guitar stabs.
The call-and-response vocal arrangements recall pop hits of the 1960s and the layered harmonies kick the choruses into high power-pop gear!“
