Blurred Out – “Modern Waves”


Oakland-based indie-rockers Blurred Out showed considerable charm on last October’s single “Meadows“, and do so once again with new track “Modern Waves”. Chirpy guitars and a brisk bass line assemble the intro, with Jeff Halley’s melodic vocal presence singing singing from the perspective of his grandfather who had Alzheimer’s, and would spend his days in the past watching reruns or telling stories about the “good ol’ days.” It’s an endearing, touching theme – especially the bit about the old country road evolving into a highway over the years – with a suave and jangly audible presentation, another success from Blurred Out, for certain.
