Blondes launch album in London

The New York academically trained musicians behind one of the most extraordinary electronic debuts of the year play Dummy's hometown.


Words by: Charlie Jones

Londoners – on the 16th February, Blondes, one of the best bands out there, will play the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston. Support comes from promising band Eaux, the new project from 3/4 of The Sian Alice Group, and DURRRRR DJ Rory Phillips. Poster below, FaceBook event page here, and tickets through FeedingTime direct.


Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, bka Blondes, met at Oberlin College, an elite compositional-music school. Working with synths and drum machines, their music is related to house, kosmiche and so on, yet works at a thrilling pace, relating time and meaning into an infinite loop that works at the speed of thought. Their debut album, out on RVNG INTL in February, is one of the most promising electronic albums we’ve heard in a long time, so when our boy Jake asked us to help out with their gig, we jumped. Expect features, photos and more exclusives around the album and the gig.
