Label: Rough Trade Records

The Long Blondes are already making a name for themselves in the music industry, so if you’ve not yet heard of them… well its about time! A pop/new wave band with a female singer, the band produces music that is incredibly diverse. There are snappy tunes such as ‘Once and Never Again’ that have the kind of energy once associated with The Libertines; 80s sounding numbers such as ‘Century’; and dark contemporary electronica that is present in ‘Round the Hairpin’. Showing off such versatility usually compromises the quality of the music, but The Long Blondes seem to be at home in a number of genres.

Listen to: Once and Never Again, Too Clever by Half

Sound Like: Kate Bush gets together with Pete Doherty and does a musical decathlon.
