Blondes, Sam Haar and Zach Steinman, have been playing music together for over 10 years. In this time they've honed their musical language of live electronic techno and brought it to warehouse and club sound systems across the world. Their live sets are infamously immersive and transcendent. With an extensive set up of hardware samplers, drum machines, synthesizers and effects, they journey into the psychotropic.

Their first release was on the seminal Merok Records in 2010, and they went on to release two full length albums and an EP on New York label RVNG Intl. 'Blondes' in 2012, 'Swisher' in 2013, and 'Persuasion' in 2015, each acclaimed universally by the press.
Blondes will return with new music later in 2017 and are planning live performances around the release.

"...if you go back five years in time, they were one of the groups that got the New York DIY scene into house and techno music in the first place." - Emilie Friedlander, The Fader

"Blondes put together one of Moogfest's most rewarding sets, a flawless hour of deep, synthobsessed techno that moved between ideas and rhythms with an expert touch and took the pair's productions down occasionally unexpected paths." - XLR8R Moogfest 2014

"Pretty but not overly nostalgic, the US house duo's second album is the perfect complement to recent records by DJ Koze and Jon Hopkins" - 4/5 FACT

"Swisher doesn't abandon the beauty of the duo's earlier work, but it uses it more judiciously." - 7.9 Pitchfork

"A prime example of how Blondes doesn't need to revolutionize its sound in order to make a highly engaging album - simply pushing its style deeper into new directions works wonders." - 8/10 XLR8R

"Everything is in its right place, but instead of processed-to-death perfection, it just feels natural." - 4/5 Resident Advisor

"This is bliss" - 10/10 Drowned In Sound
