Track Of The Day #916: The Blet Project – Eight Till Ten

If deliciously lilting dance-pop is what you’re after for the dog days of late summer, look no further.  Coming on the back of performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Blet Project release a sparkling third single that glides along seemingly effortlessly.

Though describing themselves as dance, there’s a sandy, organic quality to the band – particularly the considered guitar of Gavin McDiarmid and vocals by Maisie Hutt.  Vocals somewhat reminiscent of Roisin Murphy, in one of her less-demented moments it must be said.  Whatever the sound, it’s a wry look at modern life; angular but really rather beautiful.  One hates to use the term intelligent-pop, but ‘Eight Till Ten‘ really does fit into that genre.  There are sardonic musings afoot and musically it has a breezy perfection.

The Blet Project are very much a band to keep an extremely close eye on.  Their debut album Now Live is due November 2016 but until then, this sunny but strangely melancholy tune is quite enough to see out the last strands of the season.


Self-released 16th September 2016.
