Absinthe Junk

Absinthe Junk’s ethereal melodies are fused with eclectic musical influences and textures from around the world and darkened by an edgy army of harmonizing and melodic guitars—all of which forge a hard hitting progressive alliance.

Absinthe Junk’s ethereal melodies are fused with eclectic musical influences and textures from around the world and darkened by an edgy army of harmonizing and melodic guitars—all of which forge a hard hitting progressive alliance. Absinthe Junk breaking out wide in 2010 after signing to Severe Records, has been the winner of ReverbNation’s Playlist 7 contest, featured by Windows Media Weekly and distributed on a compilation at SXSW. Drawing on frontwoman Blair’s wide ranging imagination as a trained jazz saxophonist, orchestral composer and—would you believe?— successful comic book visual artist, the band mixes everything from progressive to alt metal and goth rock. Their innovative approach to songwriting finds critics drawing comparisons to other female led rock units Evanescence and Garbage and also to genre-bending frontrunners Abney Park and Portishead.

They’re not for the timid listener or rock fan whose tastes are easily boxed in—each song sports unique instrumentation ranging from violin to Turkish saz all the way to a fully orchestrated symphony. All of that lays the foundation for a sharply crafted assault of metaphorical undertones which saturate the moment, leaving each tune as complex and unique as the instrumentation before it. The freewheeling spirit of the band completely parallels the unique era of French history that inspired their name. « hide
