Blowout left for tour last week, just before their highly praised No Beer, No Dad came out on the 5th. We won't be seeing them back home until near mid-September, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy them tonight.
With a showering of the Perseids leading us into the weekend, all the gazing up into the stars has left us feeling a bit romantic. Blowout's "1 I Want" is a simple, sad song about a love lost. The lyrical repetition of "The one I wanted is the one you took from me" really acts to drive home the loneliness, especially when sang through vocalist/bassist Laken Wright's tender voice.
"1 I Want" packs both a powerful punch and the delicacy needed for a soft emo heart on this Saturday night.
