Blues Control released Valley Tangents nearly a year gone by, during the summer of our end-of-times, 2012. Luckily for all, the end-of-times proved to be a new age of enlightenment more than anything, with Blues Control at the forefront, extending the meadows of their Valley Tangents with no signs of straying into slate, porous rock, ocean or mountain. Valley Tangents provide lush and lively excursions for all who graze on its grasses, and recent torrential downpours yield a fresh new organism on which to feast - the official music video for 'Tangents tune, "Open Air." Directed by Tara Sinn (who also provided visual representation for "Love's A Rondo"), the video creates a dream-like pastoral landscape, capturing the ambient qualities of the song's intro and slow build with footage that becomes progressively trippier as it fleshes itself out.

What's more, the video for "Open Air" celebrates Blues Control's imminently approaching and impressive journey through not just the European countryside, but Europe's major kingdoms, towns, and metropolises, the official Valley Tangents tour of Europe! Hard to believe, but after extensive loops through every nook and cranny of the USA, a carry over to Australia and even a brief mission in Korea over the last 11 months, this tour marks the first time Blues Control will set foot on the European continent for Valley Tangents. Hard to believe, perhaps, but not a bit surprising - Blues Control take things on a chill level, like walking home from a fresh visit to the opium den, watching the grass fade to blue everywhere they roam while the Valley expands not just for they, but for all!
