'Vancouver’s Yukon Blonde have built their career on fuzzy guitars and massive power-pop hooks, which most recently anchored their 2012 LP Tiger Talk. On their latest full-length, On Blonde, the band have added some new colors to the mix, augmenting their jangly sound with a sizable arsenal of analog synths. The result is 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.' - SPIN
Anyone who caught on to the slow-burn success of 2012's desolately hook-laden Ancient Mars could sense that something in The Zolas was threatening to bubble over, and after a year of recording, their upcoming record shows an alternative pop collaboration at the top of their creative game. The currently untitled, upcoming LP marks a major departure from both the cabaret rock of 2009's Tic Toc Tic and the atmospheric minimalism of Ancient Mars. This time around the band dove headlong into vibrant, experimental pop, stirring modern production into the influences that surrounded them as kids growing up in the '90s.
Dairy Rock. Melting Pop. The music of ICE CREAM may not be as innocently sweet as the treat they're named after, but they'll certainly delight anyone with even a passing interest in garage rock. Their latest EP, We're Set, is a melting pot of dirty, fuzzy, and slightly stupid rock n’ roll. With standouts like “Wild” and “Surfer Girl” the band has been welcomed to share the stage with the likes of Hinds, Night Beats, Adult Books, SWMRS, The Aquadolls and many more.
Now, with momentum building, the band is working on finishing their debut full-length album recorded and mixed by legend Bruce Botnick (The Doors, The Beach Boys) and San Francisco underground icon Mike Carnahan. Their single “Seventeen” has already been premiered with The Wild Honey Pie and if its any indication of the rest of the bag, heads are gonna roll.
