The Nave Blues attempt to ‘Possess you’ with their take on the classic blues.

Four piece Norwegian band The Nave Blues have a sound that takes what you love about traditional blues rock and alternative rock and melded it together, all apparent in track ‘Possess You’.

The blues revivalists who have already covered and released what is considered an epic rendition of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Thank You’ are showing they mean business when it comes to reviving a genre as legendary as the Blues.

Armed with the authentic instruments, the four piece have nailed a sound that is both contemporary and pays homage to the genre. It couldn’t get any better with a harmonica player such as Nave Pundik, who opens the track with a blistering solo.

‘Possess You’ is a thoughtful blend of contemporary rock and traditional blues, though leaning more towards blues rock as opposed to delta or traditional blues. The song definitely has an alternative rock feel to it akin to Soundgarden, almost.

The song takes from the alternative sound as well as obvious influence Led Zeppelin, where the song shines is its dynamic changes, what starts of subtle proceeds to blast the listener with some catchy riffs.

‘Possess You’ also takes advantage with its mix, the raw aesthetic brings out the most in the track, particularly the harmonica solo which defines the grittiness that is accustomed with Blues Rock.

Overall, ‘Possess You’ is a great track that blends both traditional blues rock and alternative rock into a familiar package, whilst not shying away from showing off the sound that The Nave Blues have crafted.

We’re all about the songwriters here at Songwriter Spotlight and it’s we’re happy to hear that the new music competition platform, Salute Music Makers, is too!

Having launched back in April for contestants to upload their tracks, Salute has been growing its ever expanding empire, building bridges with notable partners including UNILAD, GRM Daily, Tenement TV and events company Continental Drifts. As a result, Salute have been able to get rid of the £20 per track entry fee that they initially instated.

Having always aimed to empower the grassroots songwriters of this world, this has been a huge step for the platform who are now able to offer their unprecedented £50,000 prize to a wider audience.

Feargal Sharkey, who you may remember as lead singer of The Undertones, is fronting the competition, he noted: ‘The level of support and encouragement we have received from the industry since launching our competition has been truly extraordinary. Thanks to the support of our partners, Salute is now in the enviable position to make entry absolutely, 100%, free. Yet again Salute is leading the way in providing proper support and encouragement for the next generation of great British talent.
