Blind Strike – Lost Pawn

By: Emily Clingman
3 Stars
Blind Strike’s debut rock-alternative album, Lost Pawn, is slightly reminiscent of that 70’s and 80’s classic, hard-rock story-telling anthem mixed with a sort of polished garage band feel. Lead singer, Cody Jeffryes’ voice is smooth – almost haunting – and he can really drive it home when needed during a musical climax. The entire band has nice harmonies and intricate, driving guitar riffs. Each song begins with a slow or intense intro, especially “Lost Pawn” and “Mistake.” They really have a way of grabbing you in emotionally before they rock you ears off. “The Story Of” is sort of bouncy and Americana-like, ‘Riding westward across the desert sky…’ Don’t worry though; the band doesn’t go all soft on its listeners. The song picks up the rock-and-roll as the song progresses. The album ends with “Atoya”, with a brilliant melancholy tune that hits you right in the heart. Don’t miss your chance to see them live at the Road 34 on Oct. 6.
