In a time when most artist spend the bulk of their energy trying to brainstorm over clever band names and contrived marketing schemes, it's refreshing to see a group that picks honesty over hyperbole. With that very notion in mind, the members in Chicago's beloved Blah Blah Blah, decided long ago that the music is what matters the most. And who can blame them, with a name like that, you better make damn sure that your music is better than just good enough.
Comprised of two Iowa friends and two Chicago musicians, the midwest quartet has gone thru various incarnations but finally found their footing in 2010 after being voted one of the Tribune's next bands on the verge of breaking BIG. In addition to championing the genre of Ballroom Rock, the band continually wins over the hearts of fans worldwide for their emotionally-driven yet upbeat songs that playfully strike a balance between the alternative and organic. With a revitalized sense of vibrance and a newly recorded EP on the horizon this fall, it's not hard to see why the band is so optimistic about the next chapter of their careers.
For the new project, Thank You Thank You, the band decided to ditch the ease of digital and embrace the techniques of yesteryear. By recording the entire EP in analog onto tape, they convincingly proved the old adage that sometimes you have to take a step back in order to truly move forward. With the help of music vets, like producer Matt Walker (Morrissey, Smashing Pumpkins) and engineer Sean O'Keefe (Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack, Less than Jake), the new recordings serve as a magnum opus for the band and a beacon of hope for the burgeoning indie music scene.
