Yukon Blonde at CoG Fest in Kelowna July 25

Kelowna's Yukon Blonde brings third-full length album On Blonde to Centre of Gravity Festival.

Yukon Blonde

Yukon Blonde recently released its already acclaimed third-full length album On Blonde on June 16 viaDine 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 has emerged 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 its magnetic live performances, Yukon Blonde kicked off an extensive run of North American dates in June and will be bringing the tour to its hometown of Kelowna on July 25 at Centre Of Gravity Festival. In the meantime, watch the band perform its new songs filmed live at CBC Vancouver when they headlined a recent CBC Toque Session. All tour dates are listed below.
