The Bluebook Project – Hurricane Blues

The Bluebook Project_RingMaster Review

Always carrying a ready to pounce appetite for some punk fuelled rock ‘n’ roll, UK’s The Bluebook Project quickly set our ears a buzz with their new single Hurricane Blues. Simultaneously raucous and inventively infectious, the song is a raw and magnetic slice of rousing, anthemic sound, and the most potent invitation to check out the band’s brand new EP it bursts comes.

Hailing from Bedfordshire and formed late 2013, The Bluebook Project has busily been earning a strong reputation for their presence and music over the past year through touring across the country and supporting bands such as Slaves and Coasts. Last December saw the well-received release of their debut EP Out of the Blue, and even before the dust of its unveiling had begun to settle, the quartet of vocalist/bassist Dan Thorn, guitarists Dan Watson and Jordan Smith, and drummer Benn Davis-Gregory were back in the studio conjuring up the similarly welcomed Take Me Away EP which came out this past July. Drawing on inspirations from Iggy Pop and the Arctic Monkeys through to The White Stripes, The Bluebook Project, as shown again in Hurricane Blues, casts a sound fitting any intimate or grand festivity, or indeed any passing riot.

The single opens with instantly irresistible and bulging rhythms, the swings of Davis-Gregory commanding attention even before the distinctive tones of Thorn and scythes of guitar enter the affray. Straight away there is a sense of bands like The Senton Bombs and The Screaming Blue Messiahs, as well as a seventies punk and garage rock flavouring; all spices in something still predominantly distinctive to The Bluebook Project. With spicy grooves and flowing melodic acidity entangling around its busy stroll, the single is an incitement of attitude and varied sonic colours, and quite addictive.

The Bluebook Project is a band to watch out for, their future, again using Hurricane Blues as well as their Take Me Away EP as reasoning, looking rather rosy as their sound and attention upon it evolves. We suggest not waiting though and go explore another enjoyably appetising new band on the British rock ‘n’ roll scene.
