Washington, DC-based Alcian Blue, whose early limited-edition EPs drew favorable comparisons to the likes of My Bloody Valentine and Jesus and Mary Chain, had been around for almost five years, recording records in their basement and developing an underground fan base both locally and globally. The sudden departure of their drummer left them wondering what the future held for DC’s loudest rock band. It was right at this time that vocalist/guitarist Jake Reid and his then girlfriend (now wife) Kim started writing a batch of new songs with heavy drum machine beats and walls of synths and guitars. Blending the neo-shoegaze influences from their past releases with the haunting landscapes of early ‘80s icons like Joy Division/New Order, The Cure, and prime time Depeche Mode, the new sound showcased on Alcian Blue presents a fresh perspective and groundwork for exploration. Alcian Blue were DC's best underground shoegaze act from the late 90's to early 2000's.

Formed from DC's loudest band Wintermute, Alcian Blue brought beautiful switling melodies together with blistering guitars and driving beats. When drummer Clark left to join the airforce Alcian Blue added Kim on guitars and vocals and a drum machine for their beats. Then in early 2006 the band broke splitting off into two new acts Vacuole Eyes and Screen Vinyl Image.
