'Dreamy and nostalgic songwriting combines with uplifting beats and sweet vocals to awaken the senses.' - Electronic Musician Magazine 'The album is full of lush pop melodies and the languid vocals of Veniot and Cooper lull you into a dreamy state that neatly contrasts with lyrics rife with lost love, limitations and mortality, giving the record an unexpected depth.' - j. poet, All Music Guide 46bliss is best known for their contribution to the soundtracks of Veronica Mars and CSI-NY, their singles 'The Way You Are' and 'Desire Give Way' both made waves on Internet pop charts and the press took notice. Billboard magazine called their music 'hypnotic... an engaging mélange of percolating rhythms, taut melodies and poetic lyrics.' Their ingenious remix of Mahalia Jackson crooning 'Silent Night' was included on "Christmas Remixed Vol. 2" (Six Degrees Records) and covered in a front-page article in the Washington Post. A haunting track from their repertoire, 'In A Long Time,' was a winner in The International Songwriting Competition in 2004. "Wish Me Away" is the band's third self-produced release. It pushes the envelope of electronic pop music, exploring ancient themes of spirituality and death. The new tracks range from the sweeping synth-based triplety 'Joan of Arc', to the almost operatic yet dance-inducing ode to robotic love, '2B1', while the summer-of-love-style anthem 'Na Na Na' trades off into the wsitful and haunting "Wish Me Away" and the mournful yet uplifting 'All Over Now'.
