A quick return for Powder Blue on the blog after an 'Introducing' post last month, the reason is the normal one; great bloody music."Run" is a brand new track which for now seems serves as a standalone single and a taster of what to expect when the Canadian quartet hit these shores in May. It's sure to perk the curiosity of many Great Escape attendees too with a simmering psyche soundscapes and dark, ethereal atmosphere that firmly expands on those early Warpaint comparisons...

In fact it does more than perk my curiosity, "Run" is majestic. It sounds ten times bigger than anything on the aforementioned EP with buzz saw guitar riffs and big, doom-laden drums instantly adding a fiery bite and controlled aggression to the circling rhythms and swirling synth melody, building and building the eerie atmospheric textures that blend perfectly with hazy vocal harmonies to a searing climax of feedback and noise. Exceptional is this. Listen below and see you at the front come what May...
