- Glades release their second single 'Blonde' from their upcoming album.
Glades have dropped their second single “Blonde” off their forthcoming album Planetarium which will be out later this year.
“Blonde is about helping a friend through a breakup. Sometimes you have to allow yourself to feel the full extent of your emotions to get through something. The song’s about being carefree and allowing yourself to do crazy shit to get over somebody,” multi-instrumentalist/co-producer Joey Wenceslao notes.
On “Blonde,” Glades continue the party, encouraging a freshly single friend to make drastic changes. “Crash your car and have a little more fun,” sings Karina Savage with hyperbole. The track continues to mark exciting new steps for a band that has already carved out an individual space in the Australiana pop landscape and with Planetarium, are looking to do the same in North America.
“Blonde” has a harder rock edge but still has the signature pop synths the Aussie trio is known for. The new track falls in the same vein about relationships detailing the direction of their album. Their first release “Vertigo” was a dizzying track about someone chasing someone else who is unavailable.
Since the release of their debut album To Love You in 2018, Glades – consisting of Savage, Wenceslao, and multi-instrumentalists/co-producer Cam Robertson – have spent the formative years of their adolescence releasing music.
Their debut track “Falling Away” in 2015 caught the attention of the internet, before their 2016 track “Drive” put them firmly on the map.
To Love You took the band to the next level, propelled by a string of successful singles, including “Not About You” and “Eyes Wide Shut” which nabbed the #1 most played slot on Australia’s triple j, while global breakthrough “Do Right” went on to become an ARIA certified Gold single, amassing over 100 million streams. The band has supported Rita Ora, LANY, and Clean Bandit on tour.
Planetarium no release date as of yet.
“Blonde” is available on all music streaming platforms.
