YARD OF BLONDES
Los Angeles, CA
NEW MUSIC: YOU AND I & I
Yard of Blondes is ready to unveil their first single "You and I & I" 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.
With its detuned guitars, haunting vocals and thumping rhythm section, Yard Of Blonde's « You and I & I » is the new alternative rock from the land of grunge. Pulled from their upcoming debut album « Feed the moon », this first single features guitarist Burak Yerebakan’s mean staccato strings to open the cut while Forrest Mitchell batters the drum kit, Vincent Jacob and Fanny Hill augment the track with a destabilizing intertwined yet catchy and inspired vocal performance. Lyrically, « You and I & I» deals with mental health issues, painting a schizophrenic journey where Fanny and Vincent’s vocals portrait a turmoiled inner dialogue, two voices of oneself battling between the thin margins of good and evil.
The sound is reminiscent of the best rock acts from the ’90s (Soundgarden 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.
UPCOMING SINGLE: YOU AND I & I
The new single's music video was directed by the band themselves, fully embracing DIY technics for this energy-driven manic song. From the Santa Monica Pier to the legendary Rainbow on the Sunset Strip, follow Fanny and Vincent in this Lynchian schizophrenic nightmare. Shot on Iphone 7.
YOU AND I & I Live At The Viper Room
Yard Of Blondes packed the Viper Room in April and debuted the new single LIVE.
YOU AND I & I LYRIC VIDEO
Alternate edit with Lyrics
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.
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 » will be out on November 1st of this year.
