2013-07-26 - It´s been a long, hard, and winding road, but in December 2011, the originating moment causing the first ripple in a butterfly effect was cast. What moment? Vocalist Elin Larsson met with drummer Cory Berry and bassist Zack Anderson - all just in their early twenties – and formed a group that would quickly stir intrigue and receive acclaim.
Behold the type of musical experience we thought was long gone, lost to time. Behold the birth of BLUES PILLS.
THE GROUND IS SHAKING UNDERNEATH ME | A SPINNING WORLD WITHOUT CONTROL
This young American-Swedish-French quartet create unique, intense, and extraordinary rock. They have a music lovers’ appeal that takes you right back to the time of BLUES PILLS’ ancestors: The Original Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Cream, and yes, even Aretha Franklin. The driving bass lines, grooving drums, and solos from another planet by their 17-year-old guitarist are all harmonized and tied together with ease & delight by Elin’s voice, which proves itself experienced and wiser beyond its years.
O´ DEVIL MAN, O´ DEVIL MAN | YOU’VE GOT BLACKNESS IN YOUR SOUL
Taking soulful music and combining it with blues and rock ‘n’ roll to tap into a musical force of revitalizing intensity, BLUE PILLS’ blonde archangel & soul-savior Elin Larsson will gently guide you into an empire of soulful, bluesy rock where the still-warm breath of their musical predecessors can still be felt. Elin’s transcendent voice will take you on a journey beyond the stars through an infinite universe that is profound in its revelations. With lyrics full of powerful emotions, Elin’s jazzy-soulful voice never falls into the trap of pretentiousness and instead unfolds the strong beauty of its own inner-light. BLUES PILLS have dedicated their lives to the timeless and noble art of rock ‘n’ roll and seek to know the things kept hidden that touch 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 a astral, musical world bathed in a hundred different shades of sapphire / indigo / azure / ultramarine.
QUOTES ABOUT BLUES PILLS
• "Blues Pills is a cool band with a ripping youngster on guitar. I'll throw these folks my vote." - Scott Holiday, RIVAL SONS
• "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 is one of the most interesting new acts from Sweden. Heavy, well-played blues. A new favorite!" - Ola Henriksson, WITCHCRAFT
• "The explosive offspring from a cosmic ménage à trois between the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Shocking Blue, and early Fleetwood Mac. Poppin' some of these pills will free your mind and your ass will most likely follow." - Ludwig Dahlberg, FREE FALL/ THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY
• "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 ‘70s." - Niclas Etelävuori, AMORPHIS
• “The Blues Pills are one of the best female-fronted rock groups of the scene today, paying homage to the founders of 60's and early 70's psychedelic/hard rock music, while forging ahead into the future with their own unique sound.“ - Mike Varney, founder of SHRAPNEL RECORDS
