Introducing: Blonde Tongues - Wedding Bells

Add Brisbane's Blonde Tongues to the ever growing list of impressive Aussie shoegaze bands.


Maybe it's just me but Blonde Tongues' "Wedding Bells" is exactly the kind of quality I want to hear from a band's first tracks. What I don't want to hear is a band, from somewhere pretty normal, have been to Greenland or some place random as fuck like that, to record their first tracks.

Brisbane four-piece Blonde Tongues sound like they're onto something with debut "Wedding Bells". The immensely resonating track has a slight hint of dissociative identity disorder, feeling like they're fighting a battle to stay uplifting jangle-pop, shrouded in reverb, but their seriously shoegaze vocals tell a tale of a different beast - something that can't quite break free. You can feel an undertone in their music too and it's trying hard to take a peak beyond their anthemic dream-pop - maybe it's punk, maybe it's grunge, who knows, but I'm confident the band have more up their sleeve.

You can buy a copy of "Wedding Bells", which comes with other track "Kisses" over at Blonde Tongues' bandcamp page - if you're tight you can get it for free.
