Who: Yukon Blonde from Vancouver.
What: Originally from Kelowna, but now based in Vancouver, here’s a four-piece bringing us nostalgia from those smoother sounds of the 60’s. Touching upon multi-part harmonies and thick yet simple hooks reminiscent of older bands (Fleetwood Mac, Crosby/Stills/Nash and America) and newer artists (Fleet Foxes and Local Natives), the band already have two records ready for our ears. A full length (to be released Feb 2010) and a four song EP titled ‘Everything In Everyway’ (out Oct. 6th on Nevado Records).
Song: Streets. This song totally makes me think of a Patrick Pentland (Sloan) fronting Fleet Foxes.
