Stream: Blondes – Blondes

Blondes are Zach Steinman and Sam Haar with current home base in Brooklyn. The duo met in 2003 at Oberlin College in Ohio and started experimenting. Their first influences were post-punk bands like Gang of Four and Television but their musical taste evolved through disco, kraut-rock, 80’s electronic music and deep love of Manuel Göttsching’s “E2-E4” album. After graduation the duo split up and regrouped in Berlin, where formed Blondes.
In 2010 released their first EP Touched on Merok, they played in MoMA (played again on Jan. 2012) and remixed Rihanna’s “Rude Boy”.  In 2011 RVNG Intl. started to document Blondes’ evolution with a series of 12” singles.

Their debut album explores “the concept of duality through a personal lens intensely focused on moving the body” and includes all the singles released on RVNG Intl. through 2011 along with two new tracks.  A look to the track-list makes the concept of duality clear. Their self title album will include a second CD with remixes from JD Twitch of Optimo, Dungeon Acid,SFV Acid, John Roberts, Andy Stott, Teengirl Fantasy, Bicep, Traxx, Laurel Halo,Rene Hell, and Robert Miles.
