The Blank Tapes at The Independent, by Ria Burman

One of my favorite locals bands played the Independent Friday night. If you love groovy, funky, chill beats and have yet to hear Killer Whale, check them out! Their 2017 album, Casual Crush, is triumphant. The song “Keep in Easy” is rich in guitar riffs, which echoes eighties excellence and sweet nostalgic somethings. Add to the mix, the funky fun feels of “Pink Pacific” & the groovy beats and lyrical sentiment of “Daydreams,” the album shines with a sunset-summer sound.

The Blank Tapes, on their Super Bloom tour, followed with their laid-back psychedelic rock and roll vibes cast from a time gone, fresh in the now, emitting a groovy energy, which got the crowd sway-dancing through the night. Their latest EP offering, Super Bloom, is out now and ready for desert daydreams and rolling-through-the-great-unknown kinda road trips.
