All I wanna do is get high in the summer…

What the ‘60s thought the future would sound like

Shaping a soundscape of dreamy alternative-rock bliss with unapologetic and captivating lyricism, Blonde Diamond have been on a trajectory that is hard not to be dazzled by. The Vancouver-based band have graced stages across Canada, Europe, Australia, the US, and India, sharing bills along the way with stalwarts such as Portugal. The Man, Broken Social Scene, Bishop Briggs, Mother Mother, and more.

The band’s debut single “Feel Alright” peaked at #6 on the Spotify Viral Charts within a week of its release, and the rest of their debut EP Feel Alright has surpassed a million streams. Following that, Blonde Diamond won the coveted nationwide JUNO Masterclass mentorship program. Their second EP Fantasy Love premiered on CBC Music’s First Play Live, and featured their hit “Better When You’re Close”. As the world retreated into isolation, the band took the time off to hone in on their sonic identity in preparation for their full-length debut record.

Magnetic Strangers, the 2022 debut record from the group is “a narrative about the laws of attraction, whether that be to a stranger, to a person, to a feeling, to a place,” says frontwoman Alexis Young. The record’s menagerie of operatic, late-night indie rock and roll, dive-bar R&B, charred disco, and wide-eyed electro pop play host to a warring between choice, agency, reason, and compulsion. The tracks “Red Flags” and “Dreamland” from the record garnered radioplay across Canada, and Blonde Diamond had their tracks prominently synced in the hit Netflix series Tiny Pretty Things and My Life With The Walter Boys.

The band’s newest single “I’m So F*cking Happy” arrives just in time to be the soundtrack of your summer. The accompanying video from director and longtime collaborator Brandon William Fletcher is an equally captivating event, mixing psychedelic and crystalline imagery into a memory of the best days of summertime. Blonde Diamond’s artistic efforts present a psychedelic, boundary-tensing work: that rare band which poses as many questions in its lyrics as it does in its compositions. If you’re brave enough to search for answers to them, Blonde Diamond invites you to saddle up.
