Blackchords are an indie rock threesome out of Melbourne and their latest song ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’ is soo catchy it has been played on repeat on my iPod.
If ‘Dance, Dance, Dance’ doesn’t grab you in the intro, the kick off their vocals at the start of the first chorus surely will. Opening with a blissful guitar and keyboard combination, and overlaid with some delicate vocal harmonies, Blackchords ‘had me at hello’. When the vocals did start, I was completed. They provide a vocal ensemble that is full of emotion, yet deliver their lyrics in a controlled manner, that allows the meaning in the song to come through without ruining the listen. Its haunting, deep, but somehow conveyed in such an upbeat and fun manner.
Here’s to more great tunes from Blackchords!
