CD Review: Blow Up Hollywood Float On By With "Blue Sky Blond"

From New York comes the underground rock band Blow Up Hollywood with their seventh studio album "Blue Sky Blond." The album was released on January 7th and finds lead singer/guitarist Steve Messina taking the reigns on what could be their breakthrough album.

The near seven-minute opening track "Throw Me A Line" shows a talent for flying under the radar, while sounding similar to many of today's popular rock bands like Radiohead and Coldplay. They head into a more pop/rock direction on "Headed For The Sun," before opening up on the unforgettable sound of "Waiting For My Ship." Blow Up Hollywood have the perfect formula for success with "Shine," before experimenting with the slow burn of passion on "Desert Rose." The album finishes up with the gentle touch of piano on "Majorie" and again with the solo piano instrumental of "Blue."

Blow Up Hollywood will be performing at The Space in Hamden, CT on January 29 and in Kingston, RI on the 30th before making their way westward over the next couple of months. To find out more about Blow Up Hollywood and their latest release "Blue Sky Blond," please visit
