Los Angeles rock band Yard Of Blondes released their new single Lowland from their debut album Feed the Moon.
Lowland depicts the the place where our monsters live in- the sun never rises/drifted eyes in fear/scary palms shaking. The song is a collaboration between Yard of Blondes and producer Billy Graziadei. The one and only Mike Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beck..)
Vincent Jacob (lead singer) describes the lyrics: "In the song i feel i’m going back to that dark place, but this time you’ll accompany me to get me out of there, just like Orpheus going to get Eurydice from death, except here the roles are reversed because Fanny (bass) is the one who is pulling me out from inside".
The edgy, intense music is influenced by the same artist that influenced the name of the band: Jeff Buckley. With detuned guitars, haunting vocals and thumping rhythm section Yard Of Blondes is a new alternative rock from the land of grunge.
Yard Of Blondes is a French/Californian rock band composed of Vincent Jacob (vocals/guitar), Fanny Hill (bass/vocals), Burak Yerebakan (guitar) and Forrest Mitchell (drums/vocals). With their female bassist, their raw energy and influences we can’t help but being reminded of bands such as Sonic Youth, the Pixies and the Smashing Pumpkins.
