about

Perfect Love is the b-side to Crystalline. It's reggae-tinged piano pop that strikes a strangely satisfying middle ground between Regina Spektor and Santana.

lyrics

You and I
We both like
Little stage with a few mics
Pretty soon yeah I hope they’ll hear us loud

You and I
We get high on the bright lights
And the big love
It's not life if you never fuck around

But the closest we'd ever go
To closing up this travelling show

Is for a perfect love
I've heard it's really lush
When honey brings the pretty little birds to ecstasy
They sing the sweetest little love songs
The birds never get it wrong

You and I
There are times
We lie down in a small space
It feels good just to block out all the sound

And the lengths to which we would go
For you the stage me the radio

Is for a perfect love...

We search their faces for signs
I guess that's just ill advised

The crowd can wait

I’m caught up in your perfect love
I've heard it's really lush
When honey brings the pretty little birds to ecstasy
They sing the sweetest little love songs
The birds never get it wrong
The birds never get it wrong
The birds never get it wrong
The pretty little birds never get it wrong

about

Blind Dates Sydney, Australia

Blind Dates was formed late one April night in 2014 for an entry to the Sydney Uni band comp - of which we made it to the final :-D
The single, 'Crystalline', was recorded in early 2015. Around then our lineup went from six to three in just a few days. We are currently developing a live show that builds upon the space and energy of the record.
