Sheffield five piece Blessa are preparing for the release of their debut EP ‘Love is an Evol word’ through their own label Carmel Records on 23rd June in conjunction with Generator.
The band traces its beginnings back to English Literature classes at one of the cities Universities. The two protagonists, Olivia (vocals) and Alex (guitar) formulated an artistic outlook for their newly formed coalition, centering on prose, poetry and the physical world around them, New York School poets such as Frank O’Hara and John Ashbery, and the binaries of darkness/light and open/closed spaces. The band expanded over time to include Andy (drums), Rob (guitar) and Jake (bass).
Catch the band live at:
May 10th The Great Escape Festival, Brighton
May 24th Evolution Emerging @ The Cluny, Newcastle
May 26th Gold Sounds Festival @ Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
