Brittany and the Blisstones Reveal their Latest Pop Single, “Some Times”
After a chance meeting at an open mic in Chico, CA, Brittany Bliss and Reid Givens have been inseparable as partners musically and personally. Their music is crafted by their hearts and love for music. Their sound makes you forget all your worries, stress, and pain, blowing it away to let joy and happiness in.
They just released their second pop single “Some Times,” a catchy folk pop song with reggae undertones and carried by the ukulele, played by Brittany. It has a hint of Nora Jones meets Susan Tedeschi with a hint of Vampire Weekend sprinkled in. The song is about mindfulness, wanting to keep the happiness in. Brittany sings “Let’s all keep singing/We’re surviving the flood/We’re all still singing/Cuz we’ve got air in our lungs,” a metaphor for putting one foot in front of the other.
“Humans have some peculiar defaults, such as the negativity bias that causes us to produce and pay attention to more negative thoughts than positive ones” says Brittany and Reid. “But we also have innate mechanisms for dealing with that additional negativity and still function in the world. Building up those mechanisms takes practice, but the first step is to realize that practice is needed. We don’t always get it right, and sometimes our negative thoughts take hold of us for a while. But that’s the thing about practice - we don’t have to get it right all the time, we just have to keep up the practice. It doesn’t matter how many times we get it wrong because as long as we still have breath, we have another chance to get it right. We should celebrate that. We also are not alone, there will always be people from our own history, or the world’s history showing up that we can feel ‘stuck in the mud’ and still make progress.”

The hypnotic beat not only brings us back for more, but it also brings awareness to our own mindsets. The song itself inspires positivity. Reid says “We can’t control what thoughts pop up in our mind, but we have a choice to focus on the good stuff.”
