Blitz Vega embraces sun-soaked California lifestyle with exhilarating new single ‘Love City’

Blitz Vega’s previous singles have amalgamated all manner of indie and alternative sounds from both sides of the Atlantic, their classic sonic touchpoints further infused by an undercurrent of forward-thinking electronica. Now the band – formed by the legendary Smiths’ bassist Andy Rourke and former Happy Mondays guitarist Kav Sandhu – share their latest single ‘Love City’. It provides another taste of their long-awaited debut album ‘Northern Gentleman’, which will now be released on September 25th, 2024 via FutureSonic Records.

Propelled by rattling beats, pulsating buzzsaw bass and the elegantly wasted rush of classic ‘70s NYC punk, ‘Love City’ shows that Andy Rourke kept on expanding his horizons and delivering essential new music until the very end. Kav Sandu’s assertive vocals lead the charge, his lyrics exalting the excitement and opportunities that come with being a musician in the heart of Los Angeles.

Kav says: “It was one of those special nights, the excitement of going out, letting your hair down & forgetting your troubles. Enjoying the variety of life that L.A. had to offer. This song is about experiencing your own individual journey but ultimately ending up in the same place / viewpoint as the people you meet along the way. You can look at it simply as the magic of a great night out where everything falls into place or a life journey which shapes the way you think. But hopefully it makes you smile a little, it’s a happy song.”
