Blaqk Van – “London Dress”


Ardent rock and post-punk moodiness intertwine on the memorable “London Dress,” a single from Blaqk Van. The introduction builds with debonair bass and clanging guitar, arriving into a charismatic vocal lead. “Just move along,” they entice into the “I have reservations,” declaration, stirring alongside mystique-filled guitar strums and an ensuing organ backing. The track builds with stylish momentum, recalling a classic-minded rock nostalgia though with a modern shine in its abrupt yet cohesive tonal shifts — particularly with the “I’m just fine with walking away,” anthemic uptick. “London Dress” is a strong output from Blaqk Van.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
