Coventry indie four-piece Blvff have detailed the release of debut single Where Did We Go Wrong. The track, armed with a video, sees Enemy producer Matt Terry on production duties with Spring King engineer Jamie Ellis mastering the track.
Where Did We Go Wrong has all the makings of an instant indie classic from its room-shaking bass, hostile guitar lines and the unique vocal of Michael McCann. The song itself dissects the idea of trying to take life by the scruff of the neck, but never quite being able to as McCann explains:
“The song is about missed chances. Having the best intentions, yet never changing. Wanting to be better, but failing. Never quite reaching the life you want and failing to conform with social pressures. In turn asking yourself where did we go wrong?”
Real storytelling lyrics that hit close to home are a speciality of McCann’s – something that he strives to achieve every time he picks up a pen.
“We stand for being real. In a world trying to be perfect, we aren’t. There’s no way of getting around it either, despite the cliche, we are a hard working class band form Coventry. A Staunch labour band of 20 somethings, from Irish immigrant families. There’s no hairs and graces.”
Having already received praise from BBC introducing and Fred Perry along support slots with Milburn and three crowded sets at The Great Escape, the opening remarks of Blvff’s existence have been positive and with two singles armed and ready to come out in the autumn, who could bet against them?
