They’ve been around in one form or another since 2004, but new things are afoot for York indie-popsters The Blueprints right now. Currently comprising of Stuart Allen (vocals/guitar), Mark Waters (bass) Tom Williams (Keys/Piano) and Russ Broadbent (Drums), the band plan to debut new material at their show at Fibbers next Friday 1st July. Not only that, but they’ll be giving away two new tracks on CD as well – so if you want to hear new stuff from the band, it’d be advisable to get yourself down to the gig. Support on the night comes from youthful funksters Hot Fudge, acoustic artist Open Invitation, and embryonic rock duo …And The Hangnails.
Of course, if you’re not familiar with the band then you may want to check out their previous material, some of which you can find on Facebook or (if you’re feeling old-school) Myspace. You’ll find a selection of breezy, upbeat and melodic songs await you, including the very literally titled ‘3 Minutes’ and the mandolin-led tale of childhood playground debates ‘Spectrum Vs. Commodore’. Or, for those who wish for more instant gratification, check out this video of the band playing a stripped-down version of ‘Walk’.
