Perfect Blue Sky - The Eye of Tilos

Perfect Blue Sky, by their name alone intrigued me. Their album “The Eye of Tilos” is the second attempt to conquer the world, by Perfect Blue Sky, a bizarre duo from Sweden and Australia, not exactly the closest of countries one would expect people to start and maintain a music project from. Still they seem to go against the grain and to not be too bothered, with their laid back acoustic style based on long jam style sections for the most part, not fighting too hard for “world domination” – rather being hippily happy to exist.

Mt. Wolf to release debut full-length album “Aetherlight” on May 26th 2017

London’s Mt. Wolf have experienced much since their early days as a band – line-up changes, enviable hype and interest and, most of all, a sense of expectation that has never left them.

With upcoming debut album “Aetherlight” set to not only meet but exceed those tall expectations, today they release the second track from the record, and the first single proper in the outstanding “Heavenbound”. Owing a melodic debt to the literate, songcraft of Echo & The Bunnymen and The National while retaining the sky-scraping atmospherics that have become the band’s trademark, the record captures them at perhaps their most anthemic yet.
