DOWNLOAD: Blonds - Time
Blonds aren’t blonds at all: they’re a raven-haired, inked up, spiritual necklace wearing duo who makes bruised indie rock symphonies with rich siren vox, contemplative riffs and many a stretchy transition. No surprise these kids have shared the stage with Surfer Blood and are about to with The Hold Steady, Blonde Redhead and Cults, considering their woozy sound and tailor-made production by the man behind records from Dirty Projectors, Deerhunter and Spoon. Enough name-dropping, you get the idea. Blonds are good, and their debut is going to be a big one, titled The Bad Ones and coming to an earhole near you on August 7.
