Yukon Blonde

Reveals “On Blonde” Album Stream with SPIN
Out June 16 via Dine Alone Records

“A wildly diverse set of uptempo pop tunes built on thunderous bass lines, spot-on vocal harmonies and the band’s typically sunny guitar riffs. There’s plenty here that would feel at home on a 1980s John Hughes soundtrack—and even dashes of Purple Rain-era Prince.” – SPIN

“The band’s previous releases recalled Fleet Foxes and other pastoral-minded ’70s rock, however, it’s latest offering has more in common with the likes of psychedelic contemporaries Tame Impala.”
– Consequence of Sound

“Yukon Blonde have built up a catalogue of perfectly crafted pop songs, but their forthcoming album On Blonde has them expanding into a more sophisticated dance rock sound.”
Stereogum

“…dynamic landscapes of psychedelic and synth pop waves that’ll have you ready to go late into the evening.” – Paste

“Yukon Blonde have a special touch when it comes to indie pop.” – KCRW 

Yukon Blonde reveal their third-full length album On Blonde, streaming exclusively with SPIN now until release on June 16 via Dine Alone Records. Produced by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Dan Mangan, Sleepy Sun) and mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Beck, Foster the People, Air, Depeche Mode), On Blonde recalls the band’s trademark hard-hitting choruses, highlighted by shimmering pop production.  Yukon Blonde emerges with an ambitious, fully realized psychedelic pop album.

On Blonde brings the mastery of seamlessly crafted pop songs that has become expected of Yukon Blonde while experimenting with psychedelic, digital, and synthetic sounds. It is an album gazing wistfully away towards the more shadowy elements of pop production, soft synthesizers, thin punching bass lines, and saturated psychedelic guitar effects. The result is a dynamic, visceral, sonically dense record that stays incredibly accessible to the listener.

Revered for their energetic live performance, Yukon Blonde kicks off their U.S. summer tour in July. Catch a special preview of the band live in NYC next week when they headline Piano’s Monday June 15 and Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn on 6/16 (album release day). Full dates listed below.
