I have had this track on repeat whilst working this afternoon and it has been the perfect mellow track, although it has made me search through ‘cabins’ on Tumblr, which has wasted a fair few minutes! ‘The Cabin is Cold‘ is a track from Blueprint Blue. The band are Melissa Rigby and Huw Webb of S.C.U.M and Astral Pattern, alongside Elliot Hayward. Inspired by artists like The Band (I was sold immediately when I read that!) the trio are set to release their debut EP early this year.
Blueprint Blue describe their sound as “influenced by Neil Young’s ‘Tonight’s the Night’ and The Band’s ‘Music from Big Pink’ albums“. Does that sound like your kind of thing? It’s nostalgic, it’s melancholy and it makes any city slicker feel like upping sticks and heading into the wilderness. Or is that just me?
If you want to hear more from the band, have a look at the Blueprint Blue Soundcloud page for some more tracks. I would recommend ‘That Is Me And Not The World‘. Catch Blueprint Blue at some live dates in London this month:
Thursday 9th January at Tipsy Bar, Dalston
Wednesday 29th Jan at Buffalo Bar, Islington
