“Green Light”

I love xylophones, but bongos and washed-out oceans sounds are a close second. Blanche Blanche Blanche’s “Green Light” totally captures that close second in the “solo” section of the track; very “Soul Sacrificemaybe. Maybe-maybe Blanche Blanche Blanche, a.k.a. keyboardist Zach Phillips and singer Sarah Smith, are overdoing it on releases this year. Don’t matter. SCRILL! Just, I have no idea what Blanche Blanche Blanche are singing about in this song, but ya-ya it’s catchy. Traffic catchy. (OMG: I hate driving in New York!) Yeah, this song is all about traffic. But Blanche Blanche Blanche’s off-poppy jangles are unusually soothing on the road. And they also weirdly remind me of college and my ex-girlfriend, but in a good way. All world-building. Maybe just my own world. But they definitely provide an atmosphere for listeners to build a personalized world.
