Super attractive, brother and sister combo, BLONDFIRE, really confuses the David Bowie in me. Who am I supposed to crush on harder? Either way, it’s a win/win with these two. Their latest single “Waves” was just released and it has stimulated my emotions. The acoustic melody strums along beautifully, while subtle electronic tones and twinkles accent throughout. It is a combination that works perfectly.
In a recent interview they said that their goal for the track was an “attempt at a dark disco sound.” To me it’s more of a highwayman song. I see it as the background track to a wandering cowboy, with nothing to his name but a trusty horse, a reliable firearm, and synthesizer.
BLONDFIRE will release its first album, Young Heart, under their new label Warner Bros. sometime in 2013. So hold on to your britches and put this track on repeat for a year.
