Blonde Diamond – Strange Times

Canadian outfit Blonde Diamond create an irresistibly dreamy style of synth-pop that is impossible not to be charmed by. Speaking on their new single ‘Strange Times’, frontwoman Alexis Young says:

“Lyrically, the song ‘Strange Times’ takes place in a fantastical parallel universe, so it only made sense that the video should represent that. We chose to use a bright and dreamy palette to provide a luxurious backdrop for our characters to obliviously dance away on. As it becomes clear through elements of foreshadowing that there is a clear impending doom, we ignore the signs and carry on. In the background as we see chaos and destruction unfold, we try to keep the dream alive until we become swallowed and it reveals that the universe goes on without us, unaffected. Strange times indeed.”

To date, this Vancouver-based group have graced stages across Canada, Europe, Australia, the US and India – sharing bills with the likes of Portugal. The Man, Bishop Briggs and Chromeo.
