It´s been a long, hard and winding road for mankind, but in December 2011 the moment we´ve all – yet unknowingly and yet unaware of our coming salvation – been waiting for finally saw the light of day. Elin Larsson, Cory Berry and Zack Anderson, all just in their early Twenties, formed a group which should quickly become one of the most acclaimed and interesting bands in music. Behold the birth of a new musical experience, an experience we thought was long gone, lost in time and space. Behold the birth of BLUES PILLS.
THE GROUND IS SHAKING UNDERNEATH ME | A SPINNING WORLD WITHOUT CONTROL
The young American-Swedish-French quartet create a very unique, intense and extraordinary rock atmosphere while at the same time having a major mainstream appeal that takes you right back to the time of BLUES PILLS’ ancestors Aretha Franklin, The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Cream. Driving bass lines, grooving drums and guitar solos from another planet by the only 17 year old Dorian Sorriaux, harmonized and tied together with such easiness, such delight, by Elin’s incredible voice, sometimes singing in her mother tongue Swedish.
O´ DEVIL MAN, O´ DEVIL MAN | YOU’VE GOT BLACKNESS IN YOUR SOUL
With the idea to take soul music, combined with blues and rock’n’roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, their blonde archangel & soul-saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world, the band´s empire of soulful rock; her beautiful voice seems to be taking you beyond the stars to an infinite universe on a journey that appears endless in time, yet profound and revealing. Elin´s powerful lyrics are full of emotions, her jazzy-soulful voice never falls into the trap of an aestheticization of kitsch, but unfolds an outstanding beauty itself with a refreshing new take on the timeless and unquestionably noble art of rock`n`roll, touching your soul.
GOD IS LIGHT TO THE POOR SOULS WHO DWELL IN NIGHT | TIME IS NOW, LIVE TODAY
Sit back and relax, take some BLUES PILLS and dive into their world of musical visionariness.
"Blues Pills is one of the most interesting new acts from Sweden. Heavy well played blues, a new favorite!"
Ola Henriksson, WITCHCRAFT
"Blues Pills sounds like a super group straight out of 1967 San Francisco - Big Brother and The Holding Company, thrown to the dirty floor to be mopped up by The Jimi Hendrix Experience Band. It's great to see a band doing the 60s thing with such reverence for authenticity."
Carter Kennedy, ORCHID
"Blues Pills have managed to capture an amazing authentic feel and sound to their style of blues rock. If no one had told me they are so young I would have bet my balls on them being some old lost re-mastered treasure from the early 70's."
Niclas Etelävuori, AMORPHIS
„Retro-Rock prescription? Killer!“ Frank Thießies, METAL HAMMER (DE)
„BLUES PILLS have not only surprised me at Desertfest. They were the best band of the entire festival!“
Götz Kühnemund, Editor in Chief, ROCK HARD (DE)
