Amidst the turbulent sea of eclectic Detroit bands, The Blue Squares have carved themselves a niche, resurrecting the sounds and styles of past eras and superimposing them onto their own, often more emphatic sound. Putting aside pretense and cliches, and instead focusing on the music, the quartet delivers a consistent sound that will assuage a longing for soulful sixties rock with a rough edge while appealing equally to the modern palette.
Their independently released debut album, Hard Times, is available on their website and should provide a glimpse into the souls of The Blue Squares. It embodies the gritty, unabashed rock of the 1960s. The interplay of understated lyrics against the backdrop of devious melody, coalesce to form dynamic songs in a style reminiscent of the heyday of timeless rock 'n' roll. For a more sincere introduction, catch a live show and experience first hand what the fuss is about.
