about

BLOUSE was born in a warehouse in Portland, OR. The project started in the summer of 2010, after Los Angeles native Charlie Hilton (guitarist / vocalist / keys) met Patrick Adams (bass) in, of course, art school. Soon after, they began spending nights in the aforementioned warehouse recording with Jacob Portrait –– now well-known not only as the drummer of BLOUSE, but also as a live member of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and a producer who has collaborated with UMO, Wild Nothing, EMA, Strfkr, Sunflower Bean and more –– and, after posting two demos to Bandcamp, the trio was picked up by Captured Tracks with their first 7” single, “Into Black”, following quickly.

Their self-titled debut shows a self-assured BLOUSE unveiling a sound all their own: textural swaths of guitar and wavy keys coupled with Hilton’s powerfully alluring voice, her words guiding each song as it unfolds, as if a dream.

about

Blouse Portland, Oregon

Jacob and Patrick’s Pacific Northwest alt-rock roots (filtered through post-punk and V/U) are a great counterpoint to ex-pat Southern CA transplant Charlie Hilton’s Cohen/Patti/Nico singer/songwriter nature.
