House of Blondes
House of Blondes is an electronic quartet, whose debut album was recently acclaimed by The Quietus as “the most phenomenologically beautiful album heard in a long time. The synthesisers across the whole record sound like they’re floating in the room in front of you, as though the tendrils of their oscillations and reverberations are reaching out and stroking your face, your skin, your inner organs.” Best New Bands premiered their newest track “Are You Boys All Right?”, praising it as “a dark, ambient pulser that feels like it could be part of a soundtrack to a Wong Kar-Wai film, evoking images of a smokey night punctuated by neon lines”.
