They’ve been likened to The Verve and the Stone Roses but Born Blonde don’t really have the dirt under the fingernails or the feral grounding that those bands had. No, Born Blonde is pretty firmly in the swirly, twirly world of shoegaze and all its ambient drippiness.
Signs of Fear is the lead single from the album, What the Desert Taught You and if it is a sign of things to come, then we have a cure for insomnia. This is just such a lazy sounding song, with a leaden rhythm section, patented widescreen guitars washing around the mix, topped by a suffocatingly soppy vocal. A truly boring song.
