"Wine" / "Water"
— Each purchase includes a multi-format download redeemable via Bandcamp.
Blondes complete their 2011 12″ trilogy with Wine / Water. Having spent the year road-testing the material of the Lover / Hater and Business / Pleasure 12s, Wine / Water is a mature gesture balancing the respective mind and soul of its predecessors.
“Wine” occupies the a-side with sentimental subs, synth sweeps, and a melancholy vocal phrase atop a pulsating kick. The opening bass line of “Water” sets a definitive melodic mood over which aquatic textures wash in and out and inevitably set sail on staccato squelches. There could be no other logical or illogical conclusion to the 12″ trilogy than this. If you haven’t heard in its entirety, you might not know.
