Green/Blue have thrust forth their second-born Offering to the gods of noise, washed in hypnotic barbed-wire guitar slices wrapped in troubled dreams of paranoid isolation, it’s the perfect cerebral soundtrack for these endless, draining days.
A dizzying balance of riveting guitar interplay brings Heavy Times’ influence full circle, and their minimalist backbeat just further illustrates how Green/Blue are taking the sum of their parts to the brink of air-tight tonality. Brisk, break-neck guitar patterns slide effortlessly over each track, channeling that certain euphoric tension we all yearn for in modern music, and here it is with so much to spare. Jim Blaha (Blind Shake/Shadow In The Cracks), Annie Sparrows (Soviettes/Awesome Snakes), and Dan Henry (Sgt 6 Assault/Dummies/France Has The Bomb) come together here on their Offering LP like a temporarily restrained force, just waiting to explode.
While not clinging to any of their prior bands’ styles, Green/Blue kicks through the glass into a new dimension of icy pop precision, unlimited in its warmth and invigoration. With their hushed waves of intricate heaven-woven vocal layers drizzling over each track, this Minneapolis “conglomeration of rock” comes together in incredible colors on their continuously impressive Offering. It’s quite the mesmerizing blur of styles you might just need like we do right now, so dive in and don’t look back.
