The Long Blondes are BACK! Dreams do come true…
Live at Ramsgate Music Hall on August 4th!
“Fantasy pop, performed to perfection” – NME
Inspired by the brutalist architecture and pop art lineage of their native Sheffield, The Long Blondes formed in 2003 and, by artfully colliding kitchen sink drama with motorway flyover romance, swiftly carved their own indelible niche into the UK’s alternative music landscape. Kicking off a summer tour of music halls and festivals, this show marks their return to the stage as a duo after a 14-year hiatus.
“The Long Blondes are a fantasy pop group: Nico, Nancy Sinatra, Diana Dors and Barbara Windsor. Sexy and literate, flippant and heartbreaking all at once…” – Dorian Cox
“Style and wit color this Sheffield group’s long-awaited debut LP, a kitchen-sink exploration of fear and desire that’s reminiscent of Pulp’s breakthrough record, His ‘n’ Hers” – Pitchfork (8.2/10 review)
“With its cynical heart and high-octane bite, it’s impossible not to warm to its visceral, lusty company” – The Observer
