Norwegian 4 piece The NaveBlues are bringing a new and exciting edge to blues. Nave Pundik, lead singer and harmonica player has a harmonica tone like you’ve never heard, like hearing a harmonica put through Jimi Hendrix’s pedal board, its glorious.
Their self titled album really brings together the bands love of indie, soul and rock blending them with blues seamlessly. Track one ‘Sexy Kiss’ sounds like a mash up of early 00’s indie and traditional blues with searing harmonica over a guitar riff that could be taken straight from a Libertines album or early Kings of leon.
However this is most definitely blues.
‘In a quiet place’ strips things back to piano and male female vocals bouncing back off each other creating a warming bluesy wash, whilst ‘Early in the Morning’ and Led Zep cover ‘Thank you’ see the band show off their musical prowess. Blistering guitar solo’s, astounding harmonica breaks, everything that makes you say ‘niiiiiiice’ while you recline back in your chair and sip your whisky. Thats where The NaveBlues shine, they make give blues a new life, make it fresh!
Give the video for the lead track from their album ‘The NaveBlues’, ‘Possess You’ below.
