Feature Friday – Blonder

Feature by Ellie Garno

Besides something I’m always saying I’m more of, Blonder is your new “synth-pop with real post-punk leanings” band from New York City.  Fronted by the mysterious Constantine V, they’re recommended especially for fans of Daywave, Porches, and Coast Modern.  Unconvinced?  Listen to the debut track from Blonder, “Lean,” out last month.  

Premiering on Clash, it’s a laidback summer jam (no pun intended) with something of everything.  It begins with a quick n’ quiet guitar riff, which’s later reworked; then comes synth-y drums and a chorus to dance to.  Interestingly enough, there are also hints of 90s Britpop, in the vocals especially.  “Lean” has already heard from Hype Machine, Vulture, and Apple Music Pop.  So do it.  Go Blonder.
