Yukon Blonde: Up2U
The band's penchant for catchy hooks and riffs is showcased neatly here.
By Kerry Doole
From the buoyant and bouncy indie rock that defined their first half-decade together – culminating in 2012’s incomparable Tiger Talk – through their experimentation with emotive ‘80s pop on 2015’s On Blonde to the seductive, synth-heavy Critical Hit in 2018, the band’s back catalogue is incredibly diverse.
Yukon Blonde can now be considered a semi-veteran band, given that its debut EP came out in 2009. Since then, it has earned a Juno award nod, a SOCAN #1 song award for Saturday Night, and established itself as one of our best indie rock bands. YB notably has had tracks featured in major series like Grey’s Anatomy and Revenge, and a TV placement helped the cut Summer in July notch over 2 million streams.
