When the COVID pandemic hit and the world stood still, we helplessly watched as everything was thrown into disarray…the clouds were engulfed with a certain thick uncertainty over what was an unfamiliar threat…scientists and health professionals wore their armor and got into the lab in fervent search of anything close to a solution…in the midst of this sea of unforeseen calamity and confusion, on the glowing yet gobsmacked expansive island in New York, a rock band was sprouting; Casually formed by members who were seeking solace amidst all the insanity, it has grown into one of the most popular bands in New York; the band goes by the name Blue Light Effect.
Formed during one of the most uncertain times in the history of the world, it was only right that some of their music would reflect those distasteful events around the time, and that is how their full-length debut project, “Songs From The Frontline,” came about.
A band composed of first responders, frontline workers, and a registered nurse is uniquely equipped to translate the emotions of the pandemic into music with near-universal appeal. What you are therefore getting into by subscribing to their content is a sound built around spectrum rock; nothing is off limits—talk about the dissonance, ferocity, and jolt of hard rock, the dazzle, blossom, and rhapsody of pop rock, and even the pizzazz of the more melodic and angst-free blues rock!
