Album of the Week: Pale Blue Eyes 'This House'

This week’s featured record on Kool Rock Radio is ‘This House‘, the second full-length album from Totnes, UK indie pop/indie rock band Pale Blue Eyes.

PBE said the new album is a “slightly more worldly-wise sibling” to 2022 debut LP Souvenirs. Delirious chatter… clinks of warm cans of beer… Cocteau Twins played at full blast. Lively memories of parties and people live on through This House. Defined by closure and moving on, the11-track record is shaken to its rafters as the band navigate the grief of recent parental loss. Alongside uplifting melodies that dance like no-one’s watching, the album is rich in life-affirming human connections, where music-making becomes a means of recovery.

With This House, Lucy’s hometown sounds blend with Aubrey’s evangelical interest in Motown and various funk titans. These diverse touchstones comes through in the PBE album’s blend of pop hooks and psych-rock sophistication.
