BBC Introducing: Blue Knives
Blue Knives
Blue Knives "Refuse to follow, instead they create their own drive."

Blue Knives are; Rich Cornish - drums & vocals, Nath Bayley - bass & vocals, and Dan Solly - guitar, synth, programming & lead vocals.

The local act boast a sound that contains "Deep, powerful guitar and electronic music with emphasis on time signatures, layers of vocals and guitar".

The band recently hosted a special launch party for debut album Clothing with the Sun.

The group declare they are "Not concerned about trends, fashion or what sounds good in any one month. They refuse to follow; instead, they create their own drive."

The Cornish trio formed in 2005 with the plan to "make waves" within the local music scene as a 'cutting edge' Alternative indie act.

Now, five years later the group hope to start 2010 with a new album and an updated objective of "setting sail for the rest of the world."

The band's debut album, Clothed With The Sun has already launched to success with a Mercury Prize entry and a series of good reviews from local press.

Listening to tracks from the release, the band's sound packs riffs that are reminiscent of early We are Scientists instrumentals, with a hint of Hundred Reasons.

Vocals from front man Dan also add notes of Snow Patrols edgy, rocking and far more upbeat origins. Comparisons could also be drawn to Reuben's Jamie Lenman.

You can hear tracks from the band featured on BBC Introducing with David White from time to time.

You can listen to the programme on BBC Radio Cornwall on Friday nights between 6 - 7pm or Sunday evenings 5 - 6pm. Alternatively you can listen to the show on the BBC i-player by clicking here
