The Blow

I recently saw The Blow at Newtown Theatre on Monday, and Khaela Maricich's dancing is just as good as their new record, Paper Television. As Khaela sings to the synth-y beat, off goes a plethora of sounds - claps, gentle rings from cowbells, rattles, and what can only be sounds made by collaborator Jona Bechtolt. A mish-mash of genres, it's quirky, intense and diverse all at the same time. They'll always surprise, and hit you with something unexpected. All songs are connected beautifully and smoothly in a story about being free and being in love. Airlessly sailing through, The Blow combines pop music aesthetics with the niche of not having to annoy you endlessly.
