New Music Monday: Blueburst’s Catchy Latest Singles Will Not “Vanish” Quickly

With a late 80s or early 90s college rock/alternative vibe very reminiscent of REM, Blueburst’s recent single “Vanish” is brilliant. Catchier than virtually any pop song I’ve heard in the last few years and, yet, distinct enough to not be able to be dismissed as just a pop song, it’s a perfect radio single for virtually any era. When a song is able to appeal to the mainstream and non-mainstream types alike, it’s hard to deny it. This track is sincerely undeniable.

Along with the infectious “Supernova”, “Vanish” gives us a taste of what to expect from Blueburst’s upcoming album coming this Fall. Like “Vanish” (which also happens to the the title of the forthcoming release), “Supernova” has that REM vibe, though perhaps a slightly later era REM flavor in certain ways. Either wya, the college rock/alt-rock types who came up listening to bands like them, Catherine Wheel, and Manic Street Preachers are going to fall in love. In fact, you could say the same for fans of everything from The Cure to Husker Du – or even more and contemporary modern alternative and indie rock fans.

This Atlanta rock roll trio is here and here to stay. They will not “vanish” and this Fall we’ll get to hear a full album of this vintage sound to carry through the rest of 2023. If these singles are any indication, we’ve got album of the year quality stuff on the way.

He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
