Single Review: Yukon Blonde – Como
It’s been a very long 3 years since Yukon Blonde released their last full length LP, Tiger Talk, so I basically squealed with joy when I saw that they had announced a new album for this year. With a new album comes little sneak peeks that get fans salivating and Yukon Blonde’s new single, “Como” definitely has my interest peaked.
The Vancouver foursome have always had a flair for composing summery jams and “Como” is possibly one of their best. Simple guitars open the track before exploding into a wave of glistening, catchy hooks. Dreamy vocals harmonize over delicious synths and I can’t help but dig the dig the 60’s pop inspired “ooh’s” that litter the chorus. If this track doesn’t make your summer of 2015 playlist then then you seriously need to reassess your life, or at least your musical tastes. The new album, On Blonde, drops June 16th which, for this reviewer, can’t come soon enough.
