New Treat #167: New Desert Blues

New Desert Blues have been on my radar for quite some time now. They first released a demo called ‘Thom’ around 10 months ago. The track caught some attention and rightfully so. The Americana blues sound teamed with the nostalgically romantic melody line is quite something, and lyrically it made them one of the most interesting new bands for a while. Next came ‘Daniel’, equally as beautiful, slightly more epic, slightly more pop.

Their third track offering entered the internet sphere yesterday. ‘Adam’ is their finest song yet, remaining true to that dark Americana sound which has already defined them but also nodding to the expansive sounds of Arcade Fire.

The band play The Great Escape next Friday at 12:30pm at the very intimate Fishbowl venue. I’ll be there and I hope they don’t disappoint.
