Danish electronic duo Blondage (comprising of Esben Andersen and Pernille Smith-Sivertsen) have released their new single “Stoned” – a badass love anthem for the summer of 2017. With a production full of attitude and playfulness, the song leads you through a summer day at the pool seen through the eyes of a dizzy, lovestruck girl.
“The vocals were recorded while Pernelle was sitting on the floor wrapped in blankets just after waking up from a late night out. It was like the chorus wrote itself. The song is about experiencing love through a haze, like you’re seeing yourself from the outside. Everyone who matters to you is right there and you never wanna leave “– states Esben
“There’s this raw beauty to experiencing a love that’s alien to you at first. Like a girl falling in love with another girl for the first time. The sounds, the words and the melody fit each other so well. When I hear it I’m there, diving head first into the deep end."– adds Pernille
“Stoned” is a piece of electronic pop with edge and showcases the band’s unique experimental sound to the max – the track buzzes and beeps, glistens and gleams with real summery sass. Its vibe is bright and cool and is jam packed with thumping bass and throbbing stabs that frame the auspicious auto-tuned goodness of Pernelle and Esben’s differing vocals.
Blondage have enjoyed a good run of writing new songs since the release of their self-titled EP, back in September 2016 and previously featured here at XS Noize : It seems they are ready to share a handful of signature tracks in 2017 of which “Stoned” is the first. A hazy, trippy listen.
