In an unprecedented move, The Saturday Lemmy has been surrendered for the return of the duo who have somehow managed to stay credible whilst conquering the Top 40- we're proud to welcome back to the city, BLONDE.
Informed more than ever by a plethora of largely undiluted underground influences, the current wave of British pop is in its healthiest condition for years. The likes of Rudimental, Disclosure and London Grammar have used specialist sub-genres as the starting blocks from which to make huge zeitgeist-defining pop records – in the process, providing compelling evidence that pop is no longer the dirty word that it once was.
Another vital contributing factor to the trend is the ease of access to technology. Rewind just a few years and aspiring musicians would need to fork out for a range of instruments and extensive studio time just to create a basic demo. Now a wannabe producer can craft huge ideas from nothing more than a laptop and some cracked software.
Similarly, whereas geographical factors have been of vital importance in the past, now they border on being entirely irrelevant. And these three concepts all feed into the story of electronic duo BLONDE
