PREMIERE: The Blancos channel the ghost of Jimi Hendrix on “Fool For You”

804

New York City has always been known for being the great melting pot–a city filled with people from all walks of life, ethnic backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. Formed by Cory Hueston and Jayson Robbins, The Blancos found a home and each other in the diverse city.

Today, we’re happy to premiere the band’s new single, “Fool For You,” out via Pulse Music Group. One second shy of 3 minutes long, the track mixes gritty, blues-tinged vocals with a steady rhythm that keeps listeners on their toes. The last minute of the tantalizing single calls on the ghost of Jimi Hendrix with a spaced-out guitar solo that flows through the final chords.

When asked about the song, Hueston said:

“Everyone relates to heartbreak. Everyone has played the fool. This song speaks of vulnerability and the distance between lovers physically and mentally. With help from Paul Meany (Mutemath) on a recent trip to New Orleans, we’ve created “Fool For You”…a song that expresses these common feelings in a unique way.”
