Big Bliss

Big Bliss plays Sunnyvale on 7.15 + tours with Language in August

Voted by The Deli as one of the Best NYC Indie/Post-Punk bands of 2015 earlier this year, Big Bliss consists of brothers of Cory (drums, Party of Helicopters) and Tim Race (guitar/vocals, Russenorsk/Narrow & the Brights) along with bassist Wallace May (Young Tides). Their newest single “Old Guard” (streaming below) was just released on the Unblinking Ear Records' Office Supplies series, and will be also included in their upcoming EP, out in August. Following in the footsteps of their previous material, “Old Guard” elicits the gloomy and disturbed nature of British post-punk acts like The Cure and Joy Division. Race's somewhat anxious, restless delivery provides the ideal companion for the tense and pressing instrumentation. Big Bliss’ debut EP Keep Near will be released on August 12th via Exit Stencil Records. They will be playing Sunnyvale on July 15th before heading out on a tour in support of the EP in August with fellow Brooklyn natives Language - also a band worth checking out for those who miss the days of post punk, they just released a new cassette EP titled 'Junket.' You can see language live at Shea Stadium on August 7th- John Honan

   

Big Bliss brings the suspenceful sound of post punk to Cake Shop on 03.25

Big Bliss, who recently won the Indie/Post Punk category of our Best of NYC 2015 readers' poll, is a very new project formed in 2015 by brothers Cory (drums, Party of Helicopters) and Tim Race (guitar, Russenorsk/Narrow & the Brights), after recruiting local songwriter and bass player Wallace May (Young Tides). The trio is working on a full length album to be released later in 2016, and - while doing so - have been putting out tracks that are bound to inspire fans of Interpol, early The Natiopnal and all the music lovers who seek the dark and tense atmospheres inspired to British post-punk bands like Echo and the Bunnymen and Wire. After unveiling two debut songs in September 2015 featuring a confident, suspenceful sound modeled around Wallace's deadpan vocal delivery (which is one of the most important traits of post-punk music),  Big Bliss put out their strongest single to date this past January, entitled "Constants" (streaming below). You can see them live at Cake Shop on March 25, and new Bushwick bar Gold Sounds on March 18.
