Electro Future Rock straight out of Kansas City, Various Blonde is modern rock’s missing link. Blonde has taken on many forms since their 2009 conception. With multiple personnel changes behind them, VB has finally morphed into the funky riff wielding rock house you hear on their upcoming release “Love Is How We Will Survive”. Current lineup Josh Allen (lead guitar/ lead vocals/synth), Mark Lomas (Drums, Keys), and Jason Nash (Bass) tracked this 11 song album during the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown after their plans to tour on 2019’s double EP “3s1 and 3s2” were put on hold due to the pandemic. Unlike many of their peers who put writing and rehearsal on hold for various reasons, Blonde began writing immediately and used the pandemic as motivation. The result is a beautiful bombastic cathartic pop experience headed by title track “Love Is How We Will Survive”. Various Blonde has brought their mesmerizing live show to stages with Spoon, Grizzly Bear, Deerhoof, of Montreal, Broncho, Moving Units, Dead Rider, El Ten Eleven, WHY?, De lux, Russian Circles, Free Moral Agents, Zechs Marquise, Dead Meadow, Imaad Wasif, Thursday, Fang Island, Murder By Death, Matt Pryor, Electric Sixx, Crystal Antlers, Nick Waterhouse, and many more.

“Just under three minutes long, ‘Love Is How We Survive’ is a glistening single with layers of character.“FLEX
