ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blue Flux's latest album "The Agenda" hits the racks at last, to set new standards for the band's expressive songwriting skills and dedicated musicianship. And to prove once more that nothing quite sounds like Blue Flux.
Following the album's foot-stomping instrumental opener 'Tomorrow's Too Late', the bitter-sweet guitarbasher 'Rockdad' cuts to the chase – here the relentless culture cloning visited upon once-smug parents by their retro-minded offspring. In its wake, seemingly innocuous little twangers like 'Hidebound', 'Jessica's Dream' and 'Sandwich on Putney Bridge' soon blossom into class A string-stranglers with a sting in the tail. Coming up for air, and it's down to the timely and cage-rattling title track – light and shade in a bottle. Rising from the deep, the hauntingly atmospheric 'Skinchange' and 'Click Here' waft forth, ray-like, before a bubble-soft ride back to the surface astride the life-affirming 'Vanilla Days'.

Musically "The Agenda" shows clear, well-polished links to recent Blue Flux antecedents. Sparkling guitar riffs, stealthy synth lines and the odd chugging groove all help to expertly propel each song to its destiny. The level of lyrical intensity however somewhat belies evolutionary principles. It's this album's supersonic engine to help set it apart from the Flux pack to date.

Though certainly in touch with current musical trends, Blue Flux still fiercely adhere to their self-birthed genre of one. Enquiring lyrics and guitar-driven bliss are nothing new in themselves, yet when snugly packaged and defiantly delivered by a band with their eye on the wheel rather than the charts it becomes clear that this Agenda at least will not invite too many apologies.


Band History

Now into their second decade of musicianship, Blue Flux have long since found a home in the Acoustic and Atmospheric Rock genre "with a warm slice of prog".
Previous releases include their 2004 album "Just Dreams", the passionate guitar-only album "Sugarbeat" (2002) and the 1999 classic "The Beach".
Various critics have loosely compared the Blue Flux sound to the likes of Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Radiohead and Porcupine Tree, whilst invariably stressing the band's uniqueness. With a polite and appreciative nod at the above icons, Blue Flux continue to put their very own stamp on each and every song.

Deserves better, but best kept a secret
In today's musical jungle only the loudest howlers get heard by all. Most others howl along merrily but soon get fed up with the noise. And then there are the elusive residents - quiet, shy, but unforgettable to those who had the patience to find them. Blue Flux are one of these bands. I found "The Agenda" by accident. But what a fine accident it was. Full of mesmerizing tunes that get stronger with each listen. These guys don't seem to give a flying f*** about conventions and popular song structures - all the more to surprise me. And I love surprises!
This music will never be the next big thing. Well, maybe in a hundred years from now. But then, why howl with the rest of them? To me at least The Agenda has been worth waiting for. Try tracks 3, 6, 8 & 10 to start off your own musical discovery if you have the nerve to discover your own patch of jungle.
