Now Playing: Blue Bendy – ‘International’

Tuesday, November 17, 2020


It’s been just over a year since South London band Blue Bendy has shared new music — they’re back once again to remind us why they’re so great with their latest track 'International' (out via Simonie Records). 

Pre-pandemic, they were gaining a bit of buzz in the UK after supporting the likes of Squid, ​Drahla, Omni and Scalping on tour — but just like most bands, they had to have a moment of pause when things were escalating. ‘International’ is the band's re-introduction — over the past year, they’ve been working on experimenting more and trying new things, resulting in a more electronic-driven offering for their new track. 

Arthur Nolan from the band expands on the process of making ‘International’, “The main core of the music came while trying to get cool sounds out of the Korg MS20, which was new to the band at the time. While the synth and guitar were noodling, Oscar put a big kick drum heavy beat behind the two, everything suddenly jumped together and we all at once thought: this needs to be written as a full song.”
