Big Bliss are a beacon of light on "Contact", perform at Baby's on 07.29

Sometimes it can feel like shouting into an endless void trying to get your music heard. There are thousands of new artists each day and there are even more who give up before they find an audience. Bands like Big Bliss have tapped into that raw overwhelming feeling with their spectacular and concise style of post-punk. Comprised of a simple three-piece, this outfit takes the simple components that make tight-knit, reliable rock and loosen some of the constraints to unleash a bolder statement. On their most recent single “Contact”, the reverb-soaked guitars and unrestrained drums form this bright, shimmering wall of sound that claws its way upward with each ascending repetition of the chorus. The bass is the steady hand that drives this track forward, halting any detours that could lead this song astray toward a more dream pop inspired route. It’s a song aware of its circumstances, acknowledging that grand system we could all get lost in and fighting to find the connections to keep us alive. A powerful statement like this could only be found in a precise and uncomplicated song made by a band at this juncture in their career, and it's exhilarating to witness. You can see Big Bliss perform at Baby’s All Right on July 29 and stream “Contact” below. - Tucker Pennington
