Formed in 2008, Blindness features Beth Rettig (vocals, programming, noise), Emma Quick (bass, noise), and Debbie Smith (guitar, feedback,noise), the latter being guitarist for 90’s bands Curve and Echobelly and, later, Snowpony. Their refreshing electro infested new wave sound should please fans of The Jesus and Mary Chain as well as My Bloody Valentine.
Their debut album ‘Wrapped In Plastic” will be out on Saint Marie Records on July 24 on vinyl (available right here), CD and as digital download. You can watch the video for “Confessions” below. It was filmed by Lasco Atkins and Milo Richard Downs and edited by Alex Scotti and Blindness.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
