The Blue Angel Lounge ‘Desolate Sands’

It’s incredible how quickly time flies. Could’ve been 12 years ago, when I sat down with my hometown friends Nils & Mel in an attic crammed with instruments, listening to track snippets, watching them jam and experiment, brooding over guitar riffs and bass lines. And in 2014, after the release of two mesmerising albums in the shade of mass media attention, sharing stages with the likes of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Interpol or The Dandy Warhols, the dimension of their musical aspiration has certainly changed quite a bit since then. If anything, The Blue Angel Lounge, paying tribute to the legendary New York club that offered Velvet Underground’s Nico her first shows in the US, show no signs of slowing down: ‘Desolate Sands’ is the second track from their upcoming 3rd full-length album ‘Sea of Trees’ – due on 5th May via A Records – and features a great fusion of familiar psych and post-punk elements.
