After the rousing success of their recent singles 'Love In The Afternoon' and 'The Basement', Nottingham’s indie-rock troubadours Blondes continue the support for their new EP ‘In Separation’ with the captivating new offering 'Beautiful World'.
Capturing more of that warm and invigorating aesthetic they have been developing in recent years, 'Beautiful World' sees them pursue a beautifully rich and immersive atmosphere throughout. Opting for a more euphoric and airy appeal this time around, their newest outing continues their ascent as one of the more mesmerising names emerging right now.
Speaking about ‘Beautiful World’, Alex from Blondes said,
“'Beautiful World ' feels like our first proper pop song. It’s my favourite that we’ve written so far. It’s about our relationship with our environment and each other. We wrote it to speak not just for ourselves but to anyone that finds themselves looking around at our world and wondering just how we’ve become so disconnected from one another and the planet. We hope you like it.”
Following the rapturous support for their 2021 collection ‘Out The Neighbourhood’, Blondes knew that their next steps had extremely big boots to fill. Produced in parts by Rich Turvey and Antony Genn, the new EP ‘In Separation’ sees them showcase some of their most passionate songwriting to date, capturing a warm and effervescent tone in the process.
Adding about the new EP, they said,
"Our new EP ‘In Separation’ is a collection of songs written and recorded over the past two years. It’s a project that explores the ways in which we become disconnected from one another, taking you on an emotional journey through separation to reconciliation. It speaks to the ways we live with and without each other. We feel it reflects more of the breadth of our songwriting than our first project, with us having matured a little both personally and musically since ‘Coming of Age’ and our ‘Out the Neighbourhood’ EP."
Fresh off the back of a run of support shows for Inhaler on their recent UK tour, Blondes have also announced a string of new live dates for the months ahead.
Drawing upon their experiences as four young adults coming of age in unusual times, Blondes capture both the euphoria and nostalgia of growing up in their unique brand of guitar and synth driven indie pop.
