Black Out Orchestra – New Video Tongues

(Toronto, ON): Following the release of 2021’s debut album I Will Want You When We Are Ghosts chronicled a period of heartbreak and recovery, Toronto’s Blackout Orchestra (vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Ben VanBuskirk and co-vocalist Morgan Thompson-Reid) have announced the Valentine’s Day release of their new single Tongues from their sophomore LP, Beauty Sleep, to be released on QuickFix Recordings later this year.

Across the album’s eight tracks, Beauty Sleep explores the feeling of being caught between the lingering echoes of a nightmare as you wake up to a new day, a metaphor used to represent the feelings of being between the “big moments” of your life, and what those in-between days feel like.

Go Slowly
Bury It
The Process
The First Time

“The last album ended on a high note, having gotten sober and found a new sense of purpose,” says VanBuskirk, “but ‘happily ever after isn’t real – life in all its sadness and glory keeps happening, things that you’ve moved on from still show up from time to time, and new love and new challenges keep you adapting and trying to keep up. I guess this record is about that – finding your footing after a fresh start.”

Look chic, look punk, look punk rock! If you want to dress like a real punk this 2018 in an adult way, then I highly recommend taking a look through this awesome compilation of refreshed punk rock street style looks. This year comes with some great vibes and details. We see oversized leather jackets, slouchy blazers, printed shirts, plaid skirts, and dresses, ripped jeans, etc. Personally, I like the way many ladies have translated this trend in a modern way, by adding leather pants, vintage tees, sexy stilettos, statement boots by Dr. Martens, oversized blazers, etc. Punk is officially back but in a more voguish look and max vengeance. Of course, you can go for fishnets, spikes, studs, dyed hair, and patches, but be sure to look like 18 years old girl. But there is an easy way to look punk, yet stylish. I’ve rounded some great looks for your one and only inspiration. Hope you will enjoy this compilation as much as I do.
