Cover Art

Yukon Blonde are one of a fine crop of young rock bands from the BC Interior. After 2010's debut self titled full length debut and a move to Vancouver, the band is now poised for bigger things. To tide fans over til their next album, they've released a four song EP, and it's a scorcher. “Fire” sees the band with a fine Canadian rock feel, kind of like Sloan meets The Beach Boys, with a sing-song apocalyptic chorus of “They're setting fire to the ocean”. “School Kids” has a stomping, rootsy rhythm. “Water”, is a drifting indy rock track with fine vocal harmonies. The final track, “Choices”, has an uplifting feel, again replete with vocal harmonies and ringing guitars. If this is the direction and energy they bring to their next full-length album, it will be a good album indeed.
