The Long Blondes

The Long Blondes came together through a series of chance encounters. Kate (lips), Dorian (licks), Reenie (hips), Screech (sticks) and Emma (high kicks) bumped into each other at public library counters, charity shop sale rails and the dancefloors of DIY club nights. It was deliciously inevitable that this lot would get together and form a band. The Long Blondes are the part of the next chapter of Sheffields idiosyncratic musical heritage: the suburban disco fantasies of the Human League, the opulent ridiculousness of ABC, the seedy glamour of Pulp.

The Long Blondes have released a couple of singles and are working on their debut album (release date still not set). The last single Weekend Without Makeup is released for Rough Trade and is available via Amazon. The introduction to the band with couple of songs is available as free podcast episode here.
