10 Questions For Blis. Guitarist Aaron Gossett // Musicradar

In recent years, the alt-rock revolution of the ’90s is once more becoming a fashionable reference point for up-and-comers, but few of these bands sound as raw and vital as their sonic touchstones; Sargent House signing Blis. are the exception. 

The Atlanta, Georgia three-piece fuse the wiry guitar hooks that made Pixies a household name with the disarmingly candid songwriting nous wielded by the likes of Manchester Orchestra, making them likely contenders as the next big name in guitar-led catharsis. 

Given the strength of their breathtakingly fully formed debut, No One Loves You, we felt compelled to get hold of lead songwriter, singer and guitarist, Aaron Gossett, to hear the unfortunate fate of his first guitar, the electrics that got away and a ripping - quite literally - onstage yarn…

INTERVIEW WITH BLIS. // Bearded Gentleman Music

Ladies and gentlemen, I am announcing it here and now. My choice for album of the year is none other than the magnificent debut LP, No One Loves You from the Atlantian band Blis. This powerful and confident record released on Sargent House Records comes out swinging in full force following their buzz-inducing EP Starting Fires In My Parents House. With a familiar emo/post-hardcore sound and loud/soft dynamic, Blis. manages to take your familiarity with these attributes and make you feel like you are hearing them for the first time, while appreciating the nostalgia. 

No One Loves You is an emotional listen from beginning to end.

Blis. - "No One Loves You" // UPROXX

The RX is Uproxx Music’s stamp of approval for the best albums, songs, and music stories throughout the year. Inclusion in this category is the highest distinction we can bestow, and signals the most important music being released throughout the year. The RX is the music you need, right now. 

Debut albums are rarely fully-formed. Rather, they tend to act as a foundation upon which an artist can work on their craft and achieve their vision. It is for this reason that No One Loves You, the debut album from Atlanta’s Blis. is all the more impressive: The record is immensely confident and immediately flooring upon the first listen, blurring the boundaries of emo, shoegaze, and even post-hardcore.

No One Loves You // Review on Echoes and Dust

Review by Geoff Topley via Echoes and Dust

There’s no escaping it, Atlanta’s Blis. owe a lot to Nirvana. From the baby/aquatic imagery on the album cover to the crunchy modern day grunge of their super strong debut album No One Loves You, released via Sargent House. Further expanding the wide range of sounds that label brings to us, this album is possibly an unlikely companion in the back catalogue of heavier acts. Having said that, there are occasions on this album where the guitars pack an incredible hefty thump and the swings between lighter moments and darker hues often take you by surprise. The (excellent) press release that comes with the album puts this more eloquently than I can manage by informing “it’s an album of a band that’s lived a lot of life, exploring sonic realms that on the surface, should not go together, but manage to find cohesion.”

Lengthy Interview with Arron Gossett of 'Blis,' // Off Tha Record

Local Atlanta powerhouse Blis is set to hit the road on tour this October following the anticipated release of their first full-length album, No One Loves You. The tour is filled with all local bands: Blis, Microwave, and Big Jesus, and it's a true showcase of Atlanta’s talent. The consistent theme of Blis’ music is the unique voice of their vocalist, powerful riffs, and lyrics that evoke a level of introspection that is rare amongst the post-hardcore, emo scene. Vocalist and song-writer, Aaron Gossett, took the time to discuss with me the inspiration behind the album, what life looks like for him now, and the southeast music scene.
