It is with great excitement and anticipation that we welcome back Dain Norman And The Chrysalis Effect to Aldora Britain Records. This brand new single, 'Shades Of Blue', acts as the perfect follow-up to the band's previous mini-album with the label, Back Down To Earth.
'Shades Of Blue' delves deeper into The Chrysalis Effect's love of vintage swampy psychedelia. There are technicolour outbursts in abundance and a more restrained melancholic feel too. It is a perfect juxtaposition. It is a song of feeling and emotion, led by Norman's signature soulful vocal, celestial and heavenly in equal measure. A voice of yesteryear, an approach that has become lost in this auto-tune world that we live in. There is a drive and tightness too, the band having cut their teeth on the live circuit of Tacoma, Washington and beyond.
'What You're Worth' sits alongside 'Shades Of Blue' brilliantly, harking back to the days when the A and B-sides vied for poll position. It is further evidence of Norman's fantastic songwriting ability, and his universal message of love and understanding.
For fans of George Harrison, Procol Harum, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
