Formed in 2013 from ex-members of ‘Scum’, Blueprint Blue have released a four-track EP entitled ‘When There’s Sun’. The record has a genuine modern take on 1970’s rock and has a ‘feel-good’ persona about it. A creative mix of indie pop and experimental rock in some parts, and electro-pop in others. Available on Vinyl 12”.

This is ok. Blueprint Blue are a three piece made up out of ex members of Scum (nope) and what they do is a kind of take on the sweet sweet sounds of smooth 1970's soft rock but done in garage style lo-fi no thrills production. Imagine the Wave Pictures indebted to Jackson Browne rather the Modern Lovers and you are somewhere close. I'd imagine from listening to the opening couple of tracks that they are deeply in love with Big Star. Both have elements of Alex Chilton's keening vocals and trebly guitar picking particularly 'Bad Dreams' which sounds like a young modern hurt adult channelling Chilton's lovely 'Thirteen'. Elsewhere the jangling guitars and relaxed delivery recall Ultimate Painting and look closer at the sleeve and you'll see why. The thing has been produced by their James Hoare.
It's a nice laid back record full of lilting melodies and a sweet song craft. Only four songs so it's over in a jiffy but I enjoyed it and that's the main thing.
