Out On a Limb

Statistical Blip

#

UK

Statistical Blip's debut album, "Out On a Limb," is a refreshing nod to the spirit of classic prog rock, infused with a palpable rock and roll vigor that keeps the listener engaged. Coming out of Almeria, Spain, this trio of expats—two English and one Irish—has captured a unique sound that marries complex progressive rock elements with a more grounded, rock-oriented approach (think Rush meets The Who). The album features eight tracks and spans a total of 60 minutes, providing a substantial listening experience that showcases the band's ability to blend intricate musicality with accessible melodies.

Statistical Blip

Coming out of Almeria, Spain, this trio of expats—two English and one Irish—has captured a unique sound that marries complex progressive rock elements with a more grounded, rock-oriented approach (think Rush meets The Who).

The band's history as a cover group, tackling classics from Rush to Pink Floyd, has clearly honed their skills in musicianship and audience connection. This is evident in their original compositions like "The Profit Kings" and "Look Inside," which have been well received in live settings and have made a successful transition into the studio. Recording and producing the album independently, the band has drawn on a wealth of DIY production techniques, ensuring that their debut sounds polished without losing the raw edge that their live-venue fans have come to appreciate.

"Out On a Limb" is designed to appeal to anyone who appreciates well-crafted music that takes chances without straying into self-indulgence. Each track offers something different, yet there's a cohesive quality that makes the album compelling as a whole. It's a strong foundation for Statistical Blip, and with a second album already in the works, it's clear that this is just the beginning for them.

Their melodic mix of good ol’ rock and roll with a prog underpinning is perfect for Prog Radio. Tune in to experience several of the tracks being featured currently in our New Music rotation. Songs will also be featured in next week’s “What’s New Proggy Cats?” show.
