ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Features twelve nuggets of heart-pounding, reel-you-in storytelling combined with enticing musical nectar. Their debut album exhibits post-punk guitars with a synthesizer overlay that recalls '80s New Wave’ that is wonderfully coupled with the exuberance of ‘90’s Britpop’ without burying the sound in nostalgia. On their debut, Blue Army plumbs its imagination for tales of murdered lovers ("Subway Girl") betrayal (“Acrylic Afternoons”), finding hope on the brink of hopelessness ("It’s a Wonderful Life"), apprehension and uncertainty in facing the future (“The End of the World”) underlined with apocalyptic undertones that, although seemingly dark and melancholic, still offer a brief glimmer of hope in the face of looming despair (as shown in the title track, “Beauty Will Save the World”). You will find yourself singing along even though you've never heard these tunes before. Neven, frontman and songsmith in this outfit, is obviously a canny student of ‘kitchen-sink-drama’; the total effect of this album is a cinematic storybook, but one made irresistible by skillful, catchy songs. Blue Army expertly synthesizes electronic and organic instrumentation and allows the listening audience to ascend to ecstatic heights through heart-pumping anthems as well as explore the pits of despair in bittersweet haunting melodies. Phrases turn, emotions connect and melodies soar in a wonderful marriage of word and sound. Life & Death, Heaven and Hell, Good and Evil (and all things in-between) are all cleverly portrayed within the beautifully crafted lyrics and melodies of this Blue Army. As it is, Beauty Will Save the World is just that – sonically beautiful - and it brings a diverting glamour and freshness to today's rock/pop scene.

Bio

Neven is frontman and songwriter of Blue Army, a musical project he had initiated in 2010. He is also a poet, visual artist, and writer. He grew up in Astoria, Queens and had lived there for most of his life, drawing inspiration from life as well as from his urban and multi-cultural surroundings. Musically, Neven is an anglophile and a fan of English bands Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Pulp, Blur and Oasis. He also attributes influence from a wide range of artists such as Zbigniew Preisner, Leonard Cohen, David Byrne, Blondie, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno. His songcraft exhibits a wide variety of expressions; from Chamber-Pop to New Wave, from guitar driven Post-Punk to keyboard-driven Synth Pop and Euro-Disco. If anything, he is a bit of a musical Universalist, never to be constrained to a single genre or musical expression.

His lyrical influences are just as broad as his music. From Joseph Conrad to Graham Greene; from Flannery O’Connor to Irvine Welsh, from T.S. Eliot to the Bible.

Neven plans to continue writing songs until they nail his coffin shut.

EVERYONE SHOULD TAKE A LISTEN TO THIS CD!!!
I have both of Nevin's CD's. I have one set in my vehicle and one in the house. I just love his songs, the lyrics, the music, everything. From my understanding he writes his own lyrics, music , well pretty much he does it all!! I don't know why more people aren't checking this out?????
