The Blueskies - Souvenir
On this their debut mini-album The Blueskies demonstrate a rather nice merging of electro and guitar-led indie. At times the six tracks on display come across a bit like a synthed-up Kaiser Chiefs crossed with the maudlin indie of the late-lamented Gene. But don’t let that put you off as Souvenir serves as an enjoyable introduction to this Brighton based quintet’s indie/synth-pop stylings. A period of sustained touring would help them sharpen up their sound so that, when the time comes to record a full album, the resulting tunes should be finely honed and help The Blueskies realise their potential and garner a far greater audience to boot.
