Blonds (often stylized as BLONDS) were an American indie pop duo formed in 2011 in Treasure Coast, Florida, consisting of Jordy Asher and Cari Rae. Blonds released their debut album, The Bad Ones on August 7, 2012. Blonds first came to prominence when they released their Dark Roots EP in December 2011.
Blonds – The Bad Ones. By Josh Hall, 06 August 2012, 10:46 BST. No, not Blondes. duo Blonds are a pretty arresting proposition. On the surface theirs is a slightly skewed take on big-sky Americana. But dig slightly deeper and The Bad Ones, their debut LP, reveals some fascinating and unexpected twists. Standout track ‘Amen’, for example, manages to simultaneously bring to mind The Avalanches, Love Is Hell-era Ryan Adams, and Stan Getz, all in the space of a four-minute piece of pop melancholia – and the wealth of ideas continues throughout the record. The Bad Ones is out tomorrow on Gluck, but you can stream the record below.
Yes, The Bad Ones is an album filled with sweet love and crushing heartbreak. Love, just be good to me, because I really want to mean something tonight and every time you hold me, I’m falling like an angel. Its message may run together, but its sound from song to song varies enough to make things interesting. The music of Blonds is dark and dramatic, sometimes heavily so, but they have an uncanny energy to back it up. As a stand-alone piece, The Bad Ones is good. My first listen found it interesting; a second firmly cemented its lyrics and hazy beats in my head. But a third began to reveal its similarity to so many other indie pop and rock bands out there, and every subsequent hearing has only driven that message even further home. I wouldn’t call Blonds a clone band, but I would say they feel familiar. The Bad Ones isn’t an album that’s going to blow your mind or define your summer.
The album begins with Heartstrings, a short tune that pulls from blues and doo-wop. This re-imagined form of older genres is what makes Blonds stand out from the rest. Yes, the duo can write sugary sweet indie pop, which is proved by the album’s reverbed and twinkling single, Time, but the fact that Rae and Asher bend the mold, and do it successfully, is what makes them not only interesting, but a serious contender as a buzz band in 2013.
My interest was greater piqued with their album Heartthrob. I sent a message that I loved it to find out they were fans of mine. This led to a remix and a collaboration on a Tears For Fears cover in 2013. The connection was made, and we discussed future collaborations. When working on new songs I had them in mind. I had a loop for 'Bad Ones' and thought they'd be great on it. Tegan and Sara eagerly accepted the challenge to write more, so I sent it over. Practically overnight, they returned with the verse and the chorus, written from scratch over my loop. I spent the next month.
Phillipe and David Blond have been creating intricate and glamorous one of a kind pieces since the formation of their label, The Blonds, in 2007.
