Sam Haar and Zach Steinman have been playing together in various bands since their time together at Oberlin College in Ohio, but Blondes first took shape in late 2008 when the pair was briefly living in Berlin. Although they wanted to make synthy, danceable music, Haar and Steinman also sought to keep the music as organic as possible, eschewing computers in favor of live instrumentation and using their hands. With a spacey aesthetic and a loose, analog techno sound, their forthcoming EP on Merok will certainly be a hot commodity when it drops in the months ahead.
