Blondes, the duo of Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, first met at Oberlin College in 2003, where they studied electroacoustic composition and studio art respectively, and became collaborators in a smattering of short-lived experimental outfits. They moved to Oakland, NYC, and Berlin, where they founded Blondes proper, before settling in to Brooklyn as their home base.
Blondes quickly evolved from a home studio project to a live experience built around a tactile assemblage of synthesizers, sequencers, and drum machines. Haar and Steinman’s creative approach centers around an improvisational process that first produced syrupy, space-case dance music, before further performances at nightclubs with bigger sound systems and ecstatic dance floors inspired the duo to focus their sounds at a higher fidelity and deeper frequency, both sonically and spiritually.
Blonde’s second album ‘Swisher’ was released in August 2013 via RVNG intl, followed by new EP 'Touched' in June 2015 via Clasp.
