Blurred Vision are a band of our time. Using genres that span the divides - rock with pop, driving riffs with melodic, provocative lyrics - they make sense.

Now, more than ever, with a world losing focus on what really matters, lives carelessly tossed aside, crazed leaders trading bombs and hyperbole, natural and man-made tragedies, it’s pretty refreshing to find a band like this.

Indeed it’s even rather old-fashioned. Bob Dylan noted changing times, John Lennon voted peace a chance, Neil Young was all for impeaching the President. Blurred Vision merely pick up the baton for youth.

Of course it’s not every band that has such an interesting CV to inform their progress.

The two Iranian brothers of this UK based trio, Sepp and Sohl Osley, fled their homeland when young to escape the oppressive regime. Their family set up home in Canada and it was there that they met drummer Ben Riley and in 2010 released their first single, a remake of Pink Floyd's Another Brick In The Wall Part 2 dubbed (Hey Ayatollah Leave Those Kids Alone).

A huge viral hit (much approved of by Roger Waters himself), the song was followed by live shows, various video awards, a film soundtrack, an acclaimed first album and appearances at festivals across the UK.

Now, this Autumn, Blurred Vision take their next big step.

Having been offered, and accepted, a residency at London’s historic Troubadour Club through November – they play November 4th, 11th, 17th and 24th - they come with a brand new show.

And to coincide with these four Earls Court gigs the band release a special four track CD. Limited edition, UK only, it’s titled simply, eponymously, ‘Blurred Vision’. Physical copies of the EP will be on sale exclusively at the shows.

The new material is produced by Terry Brown and has a modernised art rock sensibility with a nostalgic sophisti-pop touch. This, combined with the lyricism that has become the band’s trademark style, highlights a new direction of sound for the trio.

Blurred Vision (who are also ambassadors for New York charity WhyHunger) are, in short, a self-motivating force to be reckoned with. It’s been said by some they provide a musical antidote to a world that’s losing its way - and there’s something in that.

However you call it though, Blurred Vision are worth a close look. Make no mistake, one way or another, these boys mean business.
