After releasing three outstanding compositions, such as The Tannhauser Gate, Chains, and Another Day, Anglesey-based artist Blindness & Light returns with another exceptional number that will unquestionably appeal to all the fans of post-punk sound. The Ballad Of Them And Us embraces the fundamentals of post-punk, where the artist takes all the vital elements of the genre and shapes it until he achieves the desired ambiance. However, it’s not another post-punk track you stumble upon streaming services every day. Quite the contrary, Blindness & Light differs compared to the other contemporaries, who tirelessly recycle the same old aesthetics over again. The Ballad Of Them And Us showcases a deep exploration into complementary music genres, such as indie rock, alternative rock, and psychedelic rock, but don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some other styles along the way.
Therefore, The Ballad Of Them And Us bursts with a luxurious ambiance where all the instruments shine bright in the mix. You’ll hear how ear-appealing acoustic chord progressions and semi-distorted riffs perfectly match vividly hearable basslines. These instruments flawlessly work together in shaping a mesmerizing, beautiful, almost cathartic atmosphere where your listening apparatus delves deep into all the leads, themes, and melodies. The vocal harmonies perfectly match all these sonic maneuvers, which in this case, lead you through the exceptional lyricism of an artist. Of course, nothing would sound so profoundly dynamic without energetic rhythmic sequences built upon heavy beats, various accentuations, fills, enhancements, and other percussive decorations that define only the best post-punk songs. Blindness & Light thoroughly planned each sonic maneuver while composing The Ballad Of Them And Us. The effort ultimately paid off in an exceptional composition that will instantly end up on your post-punk playlist. The single is available on all streaming platforms. Don’t miss it!
