ROCK: 90''s Rock, ROCK: Grunge

Often torrential, yet frequently delicate, New York City’s own Back to Blonde reveal a genuinely youthful intensity within their uninhibited and innocently emotional music. A veteran three-piece, Back to Blonde’s guitar driven indie-rock lies in an area somewhere between the crunching sounds of distortion and the desperate swoons of lead singer/guitarist, Joe Rogers. With Brooklyn native Pat Malone combining efforts with drummer Christian Linsey, the layered rhythms of the bass and drums offer a pedestal for the trio’s melodies to launch themselves into intimate, and often times dark areas of narrative introspection. True, their songs sometimes reach moments of clarity, but such epiphanies are quickly crushed beneath intense swells of volume and sonic upheaval. Ultimately, one is left to wonder what truth is left after the dust has cleared.
With Back to Blonde forming in late 2004, the band’s first full-length LP, "Swim West," produced by famed indie producer Adam Lasus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo, Versus) has already made noise in New York and nationwide. Combining the efforts of powerhouse indie producer Adam Lasus with their own intense studio sessions of self-produced material, their 2004/2005 studio sessions allowed Back to Blonde to create a sound wavering on the border of shadowy melancholy and brilliant hopefulness. The first single from their debut LP, "Last Chance Oldsmobile" was selected as a featured track on the 2005 Late Nite Binghamton Compilation CD. Additionally, "Kites," "Last Chance Oldsmobile," and "Johnny Lowe (part 2)", has been selected as part of soundtracks to several exciting digital yearbooks. This confident debut from this NYC based band has also received critical acclaim in the press around the country and has been featured in dozens of periodicals around the US.
An important piece of Back to Blonde’s success remains their intense touring schedule and the band has been touring their debut passionately with tours on the east coast and out west. Their live show remains an important part of what brings fans to the band. Back to Blonde prides themselves on electric, energy filled shows tossing their strummy riffs out to be swallowed whole while the band brings themselves to points of implosion. Currently Back to Blonde continues to tour the East Coast in support of "Swim West" with a strength and passion that generates new fans with each performance. This fall they plan on traveling to Los Angeles to record their highly anticipated follow-up record.
