Blondfire’s new alt-rock single “Waves” sounds like something Olivia Newton John would be singing in the 1980s, and a song I’d be pumping through my Walkman back in the day at Jones Beach. It’s that retro cool. Putting out dreamy, catchy alt-rock is something we’ve come to expect from the California band. Their previous single “Where the Kids Are” scored big in alt-rock, and propelled them to touring gigs opening for everyone from AWOLNation to Foals. Speaking of which, two weeks ago I caught up with the band’s Erica Driscoll and Steve Stout right after they performed at Terminal 5 in New York City (opening for aforementioned Foals and Surfer Blood) and asked them about their upcoming full-length album, the current involvement of “Blondfirer” Bruce Driscoll (yes, it’s Erica’s bro), and Olivia Newton John of course. Watch. Listen. Love.
