Blessa #2 - Unfurl


A band who made an impression with me towards the back end of last year were Sheffield quartet Blessa, who start 2013 with the stream of their second track "Unfurl".

Continuing where the exquisite "Open Fields" left off, "Unfurl" is a wash of dreamy 80's nostalgia with shimmering guitars and popping bass guitar its melody is immediate and although it's lyrics are on the whole reflective and longing the infectious, repeated cries of "Since you went away, I've been in the dark" make the track the sort of song you'll be singing along to in the shower before you know it, that's no bad thing at all...
