blindspot’s first single off their upcoming 2020 sophomore EP is titled “Upside Down.” Limelight Magazine has partnered with the band to preview the new music video for the song which can be viewed below.
The video is the fourth collaboration with their friends in 41st Casanova Productions. The EP will be the follow up to their self-titled debut from 2017. They also put out a single and video in 2018 titled “All I Am,” which is their most recent release before “Upside Down.”
“Upside Down” is a new twist from blindspot, exploring the sound that their fans and listeners have come to be familiar with but also bringing that sound to new sonic heights in terms of writing maturity and an increase in modern pop and alternative rock influences.
Accompanied today’s release is a a celebratory show tonight at the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA, with Exit 18, Baabes, and Driip.
The song has inspired the title of their fall 2019 tour to be called “The Upside Down Tour,” which kicks off October 11th in New Milford, CT. The tour will take them to the Midwest and down the East Coast and back, hitting states such as PA, IN, KY, TN, GA, FL, NC, VA, and NY. They have toured the country extensively over the last few years and have played in 28 states and counting. They will be back at the Middle East Upstairs November 2nd for a combined welcome home from tour show and Halloween bash. You can also catch them at Boston Local Music Festival in City Hall Plaza September 28th and Allston Village Street Fair September 29th before they hit the road.
They have been nominated for Rock Act of the Year and Album of the Year by The New England Music Awards for 2019 and Best in State of MA for 2018.
They were a semi-finalist in this year’s 2019 Rock and Roll Rumble hosted by Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood.
According to Alexa Economou, lead singer of blindspot, “We are so excited to share new music with our listeners and have them finally hear what we have been working on. ‘Upside Down’ felt like the perfect new release from us because it showcases a fun and dancey side to our writing that stays true to the sound people have come to know as blindspot. The lyrics and message of the song explore the themes of human emotions and how difficult they can be to process and make sense of. People, relationships, and life itself can often be confusing and hard to understand, and the song addresses that reality in an upbeat type of way that we can all relate to by almost saying ‘Hey, that’s life.’ The video portrays the song in the perfect visual way with its emphasis on color, energy, and a willingness to take a deep breath and have some fun. We can’t wait to start incorporating this song into our live set and keep releasing all the tunes we’ve been cooking up.”
For those who have not heard blindspot before, they are an award nominated, female-fronted alternative rock band from Boston, MA. Comprised of Economou on lead vocals and Chris Cormier on guitar and/or drums, they are influenced by artists such as U2, The Killers, Paramore, Kings of Leon, and The 1975. Their unique sound, passion, and drive make them stand out against other musicians of their age.
