Lovely Girls Are Blind – Brésil (2012)


Delivering nine tracks of exquisite and playful instrumental Rock, today we have France’s Lovely Girls Are Blind and their third full-length release “Brésil”. Combining elements from Instrumental Rock, Post-Rock, and Progressive Rock, this French quartet manages create their own unique sound while reminding us of bands like Mogwai, God Is An Astronaut, and the more refined parts of Russian Circles.

Opening with the very eerie “Catatonie”, the band sets the mood with dreamy guitars and very well paced percussions. The band does a great job in crafting beautiful passages in this song (and the rest) that allow the song to fully develop in a natural fashion. With a shorter duration and a more direct approach, “Robotnik” shows a heavier side to the band that nicely changes the pace of the release very quickly, just before going back to more dreaminess courtesy of “Cochise”.

The band is fully warmed up when the psychedelicness of “Ayrton Senna” finally hits. The keyboards in this song are very trippy giving a Psychedelic Rock vibe on top of the post-Rock-ish vibe of the guitars. This is one of our favorite songs due to the very interesting build-up and odd tempo changes that keep the listener guessing what will happen next. The band’s playful sound and willingness to experiment produces songs like “Croquemitaine” and it’s very funky rhythm, making them one of the most diverse and risk taking bands in the Instrumental Rock genre.

Our favorite track of this release is the shoegaze-ish “Noel Noel” and is very ethereal guitar work. As the album progresses, the songs keep getting better and better and also are quite different from each other. This allows “Brésil” to be a very interesting and engaging musical rollercoaster ride that many people wouldn’t expect from an Instrumental Rock band.

In general, Lovely Grils Are Blind have managed to deliver a very mature and professional sounding release with “Brésil”. The band shows their ample experience making solid music during the nine songs presented in their release. If you are in the market for some well-crafted intriguing Instrumental Rock with dreamy guitars and solid percussions, look no further and check this band out.
