Biography

“When you write about relationships, you can’t do it halfway,” Blake confesses. “I think you really have to be fearless, and of course it's never easy."

The linear thinker versus the abstract thinker. The studio tinkerer versus the bedroom balladeer. Boy versus girl. You versus me. Us versus the world, set against a backdrop of pretty pictures and crazy ... Read more in Amazon's The Submarines Store

Editorial Reviews

Digipak. The Submarines are Hazard and John Dragonetti. They're a real-life couple whose 2006 debut, Declare a New State was written in the wake of a big break-up, then recorded after the make-up. Their 2008 album Honeysuckle Weeks, is born from their enduring union, something Blake addresses in the cutesy but cautious "You, Me and the Bourgeoise" . 10 tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honeysuckle Weeks May 17, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This is the second 10-track album from the indie pop duo "The Submarines." I liked Declare a New State!, and was pleasantly surprised to see that they were releasing another album late this spring.

Everything this time around is very sunny, happy, solid pop music. Really good music for the start of summer. Blake takes over almost all the vocals, although Dragonetti is still present on at least half of the songs. This works well. I don't think this album is destined to be a 'classic' - but it is still an impressive sophomore effort. A few tracks are great; all are good.

My favorite tracks: 1, 3, 6, 10.

This album is absolutely worth the $8.99 you can get it for in Amazon MP3 downloads.

Also, at least for now, you can listen to all of The Submarines' music for free at last.fm ([...]) - so if you want a little more than the 30 second preview Amazon or iTunes gives you, head over there and check it out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat and pretty September 18, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
I got You Me and the Bourgeoisie as a free download, and had to check out more. It's happy and upbeat, filled with indie pop goodness.

1940 is my favorite. Swimming Pool is a cute love song that puts me in a good mood. Submarine Symphonika and The Thorny Thicket are really fun, too.

The female singer has a pretty voice. The music is good and the lyrics are interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed emotions September 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I kind of bought this album on a whim... I saw a live performance, listened to some clips and thought, "what the heck!" When I popped it in the CD player I had mixed emotions, but after a couple of listens it started to grow on me a little more.

There are a handful of songs I love (hence the 4 stars rather than 3), some that are fun and good enough to listen to, and a couple that don't exactly tickle my fancy. Overall I like their sound... I definitely enjoy listening to the girl sing over the guy though.

My faves: 1, 3, 4, 6

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime Album December 9, 2009
By Shirley
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to the entire cd reminds me of other duo indie bands like "The birds and the bees" and "The Weepies".My Favorite tracks are "The wake up song" and "Xavia". This cd is a "GEM" and worth to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! January 12, 2009
By Gnaius
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like others, I got this CD mostly because of the iPhone commercial using their song. What surprised me is that that song quickly fell from my #1 favorite song on the album. There are so many tracks that are just really touching and heart-warming.

The songs on this CD are about love. And let me preface my statement that I'm a guy who much rather listen to songs that are up-tempo and not love songs. However, the lyrics are amazing and meaningful. They can seem cheesy at times (see: Swimming Pool --> "When you kiss me in ways I'd forgotten/You're love is like a swimming pool with no bottom"), but for some reason, it just fits right.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb album February 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first saw the Submarines perform in Boston at Berkley, where they were supporting Aimee Mann. They put on a truely marvellous performance, Blake has a beautiful voice, and a great personality which really comes out in her songs. This album is their second one, its fresh, vivacious and puts me in a good mood. I highly recommend it, along with their first album "Declare a New State" and also seeing them live (which I've subsequently done twice).

From the quality of the songwriting to delivery of the sound, Submarines are worth every penny. Sweet and witty vocal delivery, and she is really hot, too! Super yummy music!

The song 1940 brought me to the group, and the album is great. I know it's not main stream, but if you like indie pop or perhaps even a little, and I mean JUST a little, Dave... Read more

The CD itself was in perfect condition, but the case was cracked. Overall a little bit unsatisfied with case's condition, since I buy CD's for the CD and the case.

I was lucky enough to see The Submarines open for Aimee Mann, live and up close, in London's O2. They played songs from this CD and it was one of the coolest musical events ever! Read more

This is one of those bands that the main stream is missing out. Their sound is unique and the recording is first rate.
