The Blue Stones – One By One

The Blue Stones are a Canadian band, formed by Tarek Jafar and Justin Tessier. In the year of their tenth anniversary, they release their second full-length album Hidden Gems. But despite this title, half of its ten tracks had surfaced before. Four had been released as singles in the last year and a half, and appeared on their recent live EP Live On Display. A fifth, Spirit, was put forward in February, along with the announcement of the album.

I’d like to introduce you to my favourite β€˜deep cut’ (album track) though. Based on a brooding groove, it’s a softer song than you might expect from this rock duo. It’s very much a The Blue Stones track, it only channels blues rock, hip-hop, soul and funk differently from other songs of theirs. In that respect, Hidden Gems is a more varied album than their earlier output. This is probably a result of Paul Meany’s involvement. He produced Twenty One Pilots’ album Trench before. One By One is a good example of The Blue Stones’ new musical course.
