Scintillating Music from Sicily -The Blue Purple Bees

Coming from Catania, Sicily, the Blue Purple Bees are an Italian pop/rock band who write and sing their music in English.

The band are Drew on vocals, guitars, keyboards, Sten on lead guitar and Chacondar on drums. Blue Purple Bees’ influences, which can be fairly easily heard in their music, well, I think so, are The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, and the slithery EELS.  I thought I could here a touch of Marc Bolan of T-Rex in the ‘Bees more recent stuff.

Personally, I like the BPB’s sound.  About the only criticism I have is that their songs are too short!  Hopefully this is just because they’ve been shortened for the web, which is likely.
