Los Angeles-based Blondfire have a new album, Young Heart, on the way, and it is available now for preorder from iTunes
Young Heart will be released on February 11, 2014 on Tender Tender Rush; and the self produced album was mixed by Wally Gagel (Muse, Folk Implosion, Family Of The Year, Best Coast).
In the interim since the release of their last record, the band has developed a following through tours with AWOL Nation, Foals, and Surfer Blood; festival plays at Lollapalooza, Firefly, and Summerfest; and radio airplay from several taste maker stations nationwide. Singer Erica Driscoll can be heard on the new Avicii record. She and brother Bruce co-wrote "Liar Liar" with the artist when he sought them out for their lush indie sound.
Their music has also been heard in a national ad campaign for Honda Civic, the films Bestiesand Get a Job; on TV via ESPN's Australian Open Tennis, The Client List, CBS' Star Crossed, MTV's Awkward and The Collection.
Blondfire became the first unsigned act to hit the #1 spot on the iTunes Alternative chart and one of very few unsigned bands to be added to the Sirius Alt Nation playlist, on the strength of the evocative, bouncy "Where The Kids Are" and its arty video.
Blondfire are Bruce and Erica Driscoll, siblings who grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan; their U.S.-born dad plucked classic rock and pop on the guitar, while their Brazilian mom - a classically trained pianist - exposed them to bossa nova and music lessons.
