Blondestreak fits nicely on the shelf between Garbage
and No Doubt. Lyricist and lead singer - Victoria Clamp intimately reveals
her real world experiences, one moment singing about God, then in the
next moment about her homicidal wishes or her girl-girl attractions.
Drummer/producer Ray Palagy sound designs the tracks with quirky, futuristic
drum grooves, and a creamy mix of electric and acoustic guitars. Blondestreak
delivers serious pop songs while performing alchemy on a heart and spirit
The previous CD "Saturn's Child" has charted
in CMJ's top 30 and has independently worked its way onto commercial
radio playlists. The single, "MaryAnne," combines lush harmonies
with a simple yet irresistible guitar hook. The song captures the innocent
yearning for an old friend, compounding it with an urban urgency that
makes this tune one that college radio has jumped on.
Blondestreak has embraced the Internet with a strong
presence. The group's previous effort - "Saturn's Child" made
it onto MP3.com's list of favorite NYC bands. In 1999, Saturn's Child
landed a finalist position on 'TheUns'- a national Internet contest
sponsored by 7UP and Sonicnet/MTV. Since June 2000, they landed 3 songs
as top finalists on garageband.com with "Poptart" reaching
#4 last month on this chart of favorite songs by unsigned artists worldwide.
