Music

Press


It is always interesting when two seemingly drastically different genres of music are meshed together to form one harmonious piece of art. It would be like watching a movie that mixes comedy, horror and romance all into one film experience. Oh wait, they did that in the “Evil Dead Trilogy”. That was an epic series of films. I also have completely distracted you from my point. Blood and Water have famously (not yet, they should be soon though, if I have my way) grafted in their reggae leanings with their pop punk stylings and morphed them into twelve songs of awesome.

That first paragraph had more turns than the indy 500.
Bob Marley, meet early Relient K. Do your magic.

Blood and Water have been featured on a couple of our compilations here at IVM, so many of you will be familiar with a little bit of their work. They really do take a similar approach to music as Relient K, with a healthy mix of fun music (”The Government Stole My Ipod” is about as much fun I’ve had listening to a song in as long as I can remember) and reflective music like “Undesevering”. Yes, yes, I know the Dingees did something kind of similar back in the day. This is more upbeat and fun than what I remember of the Dingees though. So sit back, relax and have a good time with the album full of potential hit songs and spiritually reflective lyrics.

This album is legit.
Score: 9/10.

Bio

Blood and Water is a 5-piece rock band from the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

The band began taking shape in the Summer of 2006, when the band released their first EP. After a few years of local shows, the band released their first LP independently. New release in hand, Blood and Water started touring regionally, opening up for national acts like The Classic Crime, No Use For A Name, The Audition, Hawk Nelson, The Wedding, Showbread, and many more.

Blood and Water finished their most recent LP with award-winning producer, Masaki Liu (Five Iron Frenzy, The W’s, Matisyahu). The album is called “In Character”, and was released July 13th on the ever-supportive and hard working indie label, Eden Records.

With the release of “In Character”, a committed tour-schedule, and the promotional backing of Eden Records: it seems that Blood and Water is poised for a breakthrough. The band has been relentlessly touring the US for the past year with artists like Manic Drive, I Am Empire, Stellar Kart, Josiah James, and The American Scene.

Blood and Water is currently signed to the SF-based Indie label, Eden Records, and is endorsed by/affiliated with Reverend Guitars, Line 6, Knucklehead Strings, Indie Vision Music and Royal Empire Design.
