Original Rock/Roots Band from Queensland, Australia
After an almost 2 year hiatus, young sibling rockers AGNES
BLUE are back with a fresh sound and new single, titled ‘WASTED’, which is set
to be released 8/12/18.
The years between 2012 and 2015 were busy for Guitarist/Vocalist
Jack Blandford (now 21 years old) and his younger Sister Frea Blandford (now
aged 19), who plays drums in the band. They Released 2 E.Ps under an old alias
and toured extensively, playing all over QLD at Festivals and Venues from Far
North QLD to the South-East, making a name for themselves as a hardworking
original live act.
2017 and some of 2018 saw them take a break from touring and
recording though, taking time out to explore and work on their personal lives;
Jack to play as a session Guitarist with Sunshine Coast acts such as The
Floating Bridges, Mufassa, Olivia Ruth, and Frea to study and complete a Live
Music Performance course.
AB’s New Single ‘Wasted’ sees them move away from the Blues
sound they were once known for, and move into a Garage/Alternative Rock sound,
still full of riff heavy guitars, huge sounding drums and meaningful lyrics.
‘Wasted’ is about the societal pressure put on people to work
for years of their lives, sometimes without even doing a job they love, to make
just enough money to pay the bills and own the things they need to survive, while
also making it difficult for creative people to work on their art, music and
projects. It also tells a story about how some people turn to alcohol and drugs
of a weekend to try and forget their working week, helping for a short time to dismiss
their troubles and worries.
The track was recorded in July 2018 with local Producer/Engineer
Brian Goodworth at his Studio, Big Rock Studios in Coolum, Sunshine Coast.
track was Mastered by Paul Blakey at 12th and Vine Post on the Gold
The Single artwork is a Piece by Aboriginal Artist Rhiannon Williams,
based in Melbourne.
