YARD OF BLONDES
Los Angeles, CA
NEW MUSIC: LOWLAND
Yard of Blondes is ready to unveil their second single "Lowland" off their debut album "Feed the moon", produced by Billy Graziadei (Biohazard), mixed by Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More). Artwork and Music Video were both made by the Band in a deliberate attempt to convey their own DIY artistic vision.
Pulled from their upcoming debut album « Feed the moon », the second single is a catchy yet disturbing love song located in a very strange underworld where you can meet tigers and coroners.
The sound is reminiscent of the best rock acts from the ’90s (Silverchair and Smashing Pumpkins come to mind), and yet it’s not only nostalgic as the music seems to serve as a medium to a real sense of urgency of now, which is no surprise, in a more polarised and schizophrenic world than ever. Ultimately, Yard Of Blondes is the heaviest proof of what seems to be an indie movement of grunge renaissance. Whether you catch them at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA (where they live) or in Paris, France (their native land), don’t miss Yard Of Blondes’ next raging show.
The new single's music video was directed by the band themselves just like You and I & I. Lowland takes you to Disneyland and shows you what we don't want to see. It's a good illustration of all the monsters and demons we have in ourselves and we don't wanna see or hear about during our busy days. They sometimes remind themselves to us at night, leading to anxiety and fear...
BIOGRAPHY YARD OF BLONDES :
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 » as been unveiled on November 1st of 2019 and the second single, Lowland is about to drop on Valentine’s day. Both are accompanied with videos directed by Fanny and Vincent and shot with their phones. DIY is back and it’s a good news.
