Song of the Day: “Blackout” by Blacktop Queen

Today’s song is “Blackout” by Blacktop Queen. The LA group is comprised of Colorado transplant drummer Nate Lotz, and Southern California natives Omar Ahmed on bass, and vocalist/guitarist Evan Ambrose. 

Together, the trio has set out to create something true to their roots as musicians, who all grew up playing literal “garage rock.”

“We don’t want perfection in the recording process,” explains Ambrose. “We actually love and invite human error and spontaneity when we play. It evokes emotion when things mold and change in the tracking room.”

This trio has taken a DIY approach self-producing this track along with creating their own artwork, music videos, stage decor, and more.

Compared to the likes of Weezer, Cage the Elephant, and Kings of Leon, these guys have crafted a heavy hitting alterna rock that is a great song for your coming weekend.
