Blueprint Blue and Ought provide this week’s New Tunes Guide highlights.
Blueprint Blue – Melissa Rigby, Huw Webb and Elliot Hayward – release their latest EP ‘Undertoad’ on May 5th. “We wanted to capture what our shows are like so it was recorded completely live and we kept in all the mistakes, bum notes and snare buzz,” they say of the EP. “The first three songs are about either being a parent or having parents. The last song is about having panic attacks. The title ‘Undertoad’ is a reference to John Irving’s novel ‘The world according to Garp’.”
Ought are getting ready to release their debut album ‘More Than Any Other Day’ on the 28th of this month and have shared another track, ‘Habit’. ‘More Than Any Other Day’ is the result of a week of recording and mixing at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango with engineer Radwan Moumneh in November 2013.
