Soul Blind – “Third Chain”

Soul Blind – “Third Chain”

The Hudson Valley band Soul Blind has been around for a couple years, evoking ’90s alt-rock on a series of EPs and singles that were collected on last year’s Greatest Hits Vol. 1. Today, they’re announcing a new EP called Third Chain, out next month, with the impressively zoned-out title track that boasts some monster riffs and a walloping nostalgic edge. Here’s the band on how the song came together:

Third Chain came together in the midst of writing last summer. The song comes from a wide array of influences of ours that we’ve molded into our own. It’s a very guitar driven song carried by melodies of the vocals. We tried to tap into that fast paced gritty guitar-driven sound while keeping the chorus open and huge. Our guitarist Finn came up with the lead riff and everything fell together naturally after that. It’s stood out to us as the single for the EP because it’s a good middle ground of the three tracks and exemplifies how diverse our sound can be. We shot the music video at a park from our area that we all went to growing up with a close friend and frequent collaborator, Justin Pietropaoli.
