To say BLONDS is headed in the right direction is an understatement. Having secured a feature from the talented Shiloh Dynasty, BLONDS is making a way for himself. Read what he had to say below.
"I first got into music at around 9 or 10 years old when I discovered YouTube videos of my favorite bands performing. It inspired me to take up guitar, which lead to other instruments, and eventually I found myself singing and songwriting. I make music because I can't not. I apologize for the vague double-negative, but I feel an overwhelming compulsion to make music and I can't imagine myself not doing it. Like most contemporary musicians I'm indirectly inspired by The Beatles and Michael Jackson, but my most direct influences are Frank Ocean, Mura Masa, and Young The Giant. Hopefully my music alone will be of enough distinction to make me unique, but if it isn't then maybe my disregard for genres will be, or my unfortunately awkward demeanor. Ultimately I'm not too worried about being seen as unique, I'm satisfied making music I enjoy, and one would hope that others enjoy it too. Currently my music is headed in a direction of narratively driven and lo-fi textured songs mostly about loneliness, unfulfilled ambition, and a distaste for the trappings of modern technology. Granted, I'm only 21 years old so I don't remember a time before modern technology, and I'm not sure I could live without my iPhone, but a world without of all of these modern burdens sounds very free. My past year has unfortunately been filled with personal hardship, tragedy, and a great deal of school work, as I am a student at the University of California, Santa Barbara, but it appears that the worst is behind me and I can focus much more now on my music. Currently I have a list of songs gathered up for singles and a future EP/mixtape. Currently, my new single "Trust Nobody," which features the allusive Shiloh Dynasty, is available on Spotify and Apple Music."
