The new EP from Blood Wizard is truly fantastic. Cai Burns, an artist behind the moniker, enlarges the scope of his sound, boosting it with avant-garde elements and keeping the essence of his ability to build stories within every song.
The mini-album is equally innovative and accessible, it floats neatly and never gets boring. The artist managed to do the truly impossible thing — components of psychedelic pop, post-punk, folk and indie rock are very organically combined here. And at the same time, all the songs are seasoned and decorated with a layer of art pop elements, one-of-a-kind storytelling and successful experiments.
Add to this all also an original stage image, creative visual elements (check out the music videos for “The Slip” and “Imaginary House”) and we get one of the coolest musical projects of our time.
On September 16 Blood Wizard will release his new EP Imaginary House via Moshi Moshi Records. It follows his outstanding debut LP Western Spaghetti from last year and will include six more inventive and unique pieces from Cai Burns, an artist behind the moniker.
We have already heard “Imaginary House”, “The Slip” and now it is time for one final preview of an upcoming release — the folky and storytelling-driven “Too Late For The Disco”. This track once again shows the talent of an artist who is able to successfully complement the elements of classic folk with his innovative, creative and most modern approach to songwriting.
