Album: GOLDEN BLONDE - 'GWEN' available for download/stream: Bandcamp

GOLDEN BLONDE formed in Canberra where a flourishing house party, warehouse music community was developing. They have since relocated to Sydney and have shared the stage with the likes of Deerhoof (USA), Rainbow Chan, My Disco, Carsick Cars (CHN), Mere Women and Thomas William. Influenced by the likes of Warp label electronica and the raw cuttings of hip hop, the four-piece create an acoustic and electronic mix of rigid, skittering beats, choral melodies, brutal sub frequencies, loops and field recordings.

GOLDEN BLONDE's debut album GWEN, recorded and mixed by Tim Carr (Mere Women, Talons, Kyu) and mastered by Jeff Lipton & Maria Rice at Peerless Mastering (Battles, Arcade Fire, Lightning Bolt), was released on 2 September 2013.
