A Deli Premiere: No Swoon share single “Blame The Messenger” + play Elsewhere on 8/8





A Deli Premiere: No Swoon share single “Blame The Messenger” + play Elsewhere on 8/8

Fresh off of their impressive live show appearance at Northside Fest, noisy dream-gazers No Swoon premiere their latest track “Blame The Messenger” here on The Deli. Establishing its soaring melody from the very first note, a triumphant swirl of guitar and keyboards float above deep thudding drums. Vocalist (and guitarist) Tasha Abbott sings in a sultry and elongated style that references Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins. “Blame the messenger and dusty words,” she sings (extended out as “wo-o-o-ords”) against the band's momentary angular accents. “Tongue's all wet (pronounced “way-a-yet”), flooding the curb” points towards a theme of desire and apprehension. With nearly if not all the bass coming from keyboards, the tracks underpinnings are buzzier and less note driven. A central ambient interlude ultimately leads to one more lengthy instrumental break, complete with elevated vocal outro. The band will play a free show this Wednesday 8/8 at Elsewhere's Rooftop with Rodes Rollins. - Dave Cromwell
