Tune of the day goes to ‘Staring Blues’ by One Horse Pony. We have been listening to it all day since it dropped by the inbox in the early hours. Nothing like a bit of Blues, and there is nothing like the Blues these guys introduce you to – cool, soft and understated, but with an obvious and unique European feel.
Staring Blues uses the old addage of love lost in a cool and fresh way; revamping what you thought you already knew about the genre.
With unique videos like the one below, and a collection of quirky handles that include a badger, a meerkat, a Reverend, a King and Germany (!), these guys are certainly enjoying making the music we enjoy listening to – seeing them currently top the iTunes Blues chart. Well deserved in my opinion.
You can get the single on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play, or catch them singing it live at their monthly slot in Whelans – free entry! I know where I’ll be this weekend……
