Yukon Blonde

Yukon Blonde emerged in 2010 as a guitar-heavy rock band and have been experimenting ever since. With a stop in ’80s pop, the Vancouver-based five-piece band then ditched their guitars (mostly) in favour of synths and drum machines to build danceable, multi-dimensional soundscapes. With their fifth release, Vindicator, Yukon Blonde rewrote their story again, dousing keyboard melodies and relaxed grooves with psychedelic hues that are both playful and expansive. The band all share vocal duties and Jeffrey Innes, the band’s primary songwriter, lets his lyrics, which range from love to our relationship with social media, drive the shape of the songs. As Innes notes, “You don’t really need to compete with yourself, you just need to challenge yourself.”
