Blacklist - "Flight of the Demoiselles"
Midnight of the Century stands poised for revelation, and Blacklist has given us a taste with the nubile offering, "Flight of the Demoiselles." Previously heard on stages from New York to Austin, the first single off their upcoming full-length shimmers with a dark radiance, heavy on climax and conquest through strident stances and headlong glances. Are they referring to the lissome avian living in central Asia, or maybe to the five cubic creatures of Picasso's "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon"? Perhaps it's neither - or both? Either way, you can still sing along.
