Blondes craft enveloping, cosmically smooth melodies, born out of a shrewd mélange of synthesizers, sequencers, and other drum machines. Founding members Zach Steinman and Sam Haar met while studying electroacoustic composition in school, but they officialised their duo during a trip to Berlin, and their music project began taking off upon their return to Brooklyn. Since releasing their first EP, Touched, on Merok Records, they’ve refined their sound through the release of a trilogy for New York label RVNG. Inspired by their personal experiences, they explore the concept of duality through a number of track pairings: Lover/Hater, Business/Pleasure, and Wine/Water. For their debut album, they added Gold/Amber to their ever-growing list of dichotomies.
