Unleash Brand New Track “Saturday Night” via Paste
Announce SXSW Shows & National Tour w/ Lieutenant
(Nate Mendel of Foo Fighters/Sunny Day Real Estate)
New Album Coming Summer 2015
““Saturday Night” sounds like a track to play before a night on the town during a weekend of endless possibilities, with a triumphant chorus and dynamic landscapes of psychedelic and synth pop waves that’ll have you ready to go late into the evening. Of course, it’s also possible you may wear yourself out dancing before you even make it outside.” – Paste
Yukon Blonde have been hard at work in the studio for the past year and have revealed a glimpse of the fruits of their labor. Working with engineer and co-producer Colin Stewart(Black Mountain, Dan Mangan, Sleepy Sun) at The Hive throughout 2014, and mixer Tony Hoffer (M83, Beck, Foster the People, Air, Depeche Mode) the band prepare to expand their reputation for seamlessly crafted pop songs, cocktails of psychedelic and synthetic sounds on its upcoming record.
Today Yukon Blonde reveal the first taste of its forthcoming material with the funk-laden new track “Saturday Night”, premiering via Paste and available here
Yukon Blonde’s breakout sophomore album Tiger Talk (2012) cemented their place in the contemporary indie pop landscape with hard-hitting choruses and dynamics. More visceral and instantly accessible than its predecessors, the band has revealed the single “Saturday Night” as a taste of what is to come on their 3rd studio album coming this summer. A true weekend jammer, the track is an impossibly infectious and unique mix of indie pop and rock.
Yukon Blonde are a force of nature with their trade-marked hard-hitting choruses and the pop landscape they effortlessly traverse, crossing back and forth on their vehicles of analogue synths and wiry guitars, building strong and unique hooks.
The band heads into SXSW this week and will join Lieutenant (Nate Mendel, bassist for Foo Fighters & Sunny Day Real Estate) on the road later in March, see below for all dates!
