While still circling the two founding members of the band found the time to write, pre-produce and make demos for 12 songs intended for the first full length album. And with a steady line-up in place it was finally time to do some serious recording. The band recorded three songs in their own home studios, mixed them with one of Norway's finest engineers, Geir Luedy, and left the mastering to Mika Jussila at Finnvox studios in Helsinki, Finland. The result is the EP that you've hopefully already slipped into your CD player: "The second monologue".
The Pedestrians of Blue sound is fairly heavy, dark and modern, but with a melodic sheen. Bands like Queensryche and Black Sabbath might come to mind, but with more of a traditional pop approach when it comes to the vocals. Due to some unexpected twists and turns the music has also often been labelled progressive. Still, the basis of a POB song is always a strong melody.
"The second monologue" is released through the band's own label, "FishFarm Records", but the band is currently searching for a record deal to complete the whole album...
