Yard Of Blondes started as a French duet who relocated to the US in 2010. Vincent & Fanny got lost in the California desert to start a new life.
There they were first highlighted by the Hi-Desert local scene and appeared as guests on the compilation "Highway 62 Love Songs" featuring internationally renowned artists Eric Burdon (The Animals) and Victoria Williams.
After a long series of concerts at some of the greatest venues in Los Angeles (The Troubadour, Whisky A GoGo, The Viper Room, The Bootleg, The Montalban Theatre, The Crest,...), Rodney Bingenheimer, the legendary KROQ DJ began playing their title track Murderology in 2013. He was subsequently imitated by more than 100 international radio station.
On December 1 of 2014, Yard Of Blondes started to get more and more famous in France. This was due to the national broadcast of the one-hour documentary, “Joshua Trip”. The film is a road trip with Vincent & Fanny as hosts, a journey where they perform and write a song (Born Again) during some desert sessions.
In 2016, Yard Of Blondes was featured on the compilation « I love you all the time » along with Eagles Of Death Metal, Florence & The Machine, Kings Of Leon, Jimmy Eat World and many more. All the proceeds were given to the victims of the Paris attacks.
During the summer of 2019, Yard Of Blondes came back with a lighter and upbeat single called « Je veux danser tout l’été », their first original bilingual song. The song came along with two other alternative versions, a remix by French superstar DJ and producer Joachim Garraud (David Bowie, Beyonce, David Guetta) and a grungy home demo. The remix was produced in Joachim’s new spaceship, a 100% solar-powered RV turned into a recording studio, in the middle of the Mojave desert which is documented in the Music video. The song was broadcasted worldwide and landed on MTV in Europe.
Yard of Blondes just finished producing their first full-length album « Feed the Moon ». The record was produced by Billy Graziadei (founder member of Biohazard) in Los Angeles at Firewater Studios, mixed by Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More). The first single of this release, « You and I & I » has been unveiled on November 1st of 2019 and the second single, Lowland is about to drop on Valentine’s day. Both are accompanied by videos directed by Fanny and Vincent and shot with their phones. DIY is back and it’s good news.
