BEDlight For BlueEYES, perhaps you have heard of this band, and perhaps you haven’t. If you have not yet heard of these Jersey boys, then just wait and in a matter of time they will more than likely be on MTV, Fuse, and your local radio station. Some people might like it while for others this release will fall by the wayside. Whatever your response to this record may be, it certainly has an opportunity to be a huge hit among scenesters, hipsters, and the corporate rock radio world.
This album was released by Trustkill Records eight months after the band signed to the label, and with a solid label home BEDlight will begin to spread their brand of passionate and driving rock to the world. Not only will they have the U.S. release but they plan to make a Spanish version of the album as well. This same desire to spread their music worldwide is just a part of the passion that fuels their music.
The Dawn opens up with "Ephemeral Addictions" and this track, much like the rest of the album, is all high energy with excellent vocals. They range from a well-sung ballad to high-pitched squeals, as well as some great screams and the up-tempo rock shouts. The guitars throughout the disc provide some great solos that are reminiscent of 70’s classic rock and 80’s glam metal. The way each of these instruments accompany one another is akin to that of a well-oiled machine that runs the same day in and day out with a few minor tweaks here and there. The way this album was mixed allows you to hear each individual instrument, or you can hear the workings of said machine if we stick with the metaphor.
Lyrically, this album is nothing new, but the quality of the vocals certainly sticks out and allows for more acceptance of a story that has been told a thousand times over. They also throw a few Spanish lines into a song or two, but it doesn’t really deter anything, but instead adds more to the diversity of this band. So when the Spanish version is released, does that mean those lines will be in English? Whatever the language, BEDlight For BlueEYES know that they have a voice in the modern rock scene, which isn’t an easy these days.
As previously stated, BEDlight for BlueEYES is a name that you will begin to hear more and more as their popularity grows. TRL? Oven Fresh? Who really knows what is in store for this band, but one thing is for sure when Alternative Press said “Expect World Domination” and they probably aren’t too far off. With this release, The Dawn is definitely about to break.
