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.
With its contradictory retro, but modern sound (listen and you will understand!) Blue Purple Bees music is well worth listening to, so here is some of it to give you a buzz.
