Blah Blah Blah

I was thrown for a loop when I first started listening to Blah Blah Blah's "Why Am I The Only One Laughing".  As the track leads in, the audience is treated to a post-punk rhythm comparable to something like Bloc Party or Interpol; I was just waiting for the guitars to explode or (lead singer) Solomon David's vocals to rupture into a low roar.  What hooked me, though, was the fact it didn't.  Doing so would've sounded too obvious, too cliché if you will.  Rather, the whole track remains smooth and glossy while David's vocals glide over the melody and drift between falsettos.  Needless to say it was a welcomed surprise, giving the song an original taste.  It also serves as an effective backbone, and a proper introduction, to their Thank You Thank You EP, which came out August of last year.  Acting as the EP's most recent single, it's congruent with the mood the band is trying to establish, a playful and fun atmosphere that delivers a whole bunch of creative energy.  Don't take my word for it, have a listen to the whole thing over in the music section of their Tumblr.  It's also available on iTunes.  Check out "Why Am I The Only One Laughing" below, and then be sure snag the free download before it's too late.

As mentioned yesterday, I'm new on Twitter!  I'm already getting excited about the possibilities, it's going to be a lot of fun.  If interested, you can follow me below!
