Ahhh Portland...a city where over the years they have silently continued to put out great music without fail. 2011 sees another band that is hopefully going to break out of the "great local band" mold and get recognized. Name: Blouse. Sound: Dreamy shoegaze with breathy female vocals. Score: A+.
Featuring Charlie Hinton, Patrick Adams and Jacob Portrait, the Portland trio has released a video for their first single Into Black that lure's you in from the second Hinton softly sings the first note. Their video for the track is set to sequenced clips from Léos Carax's 1991 film Les Amants du Pont-Neuf which provide the perfect ambiance.
