With a name like Blondes Make Better Victims, there had better be a great back story. The name is actually an Alfred Hitchcock quote that the band thought would capture the essence of this 5 piece from the music hotbed of Austin, Texas.
Blondes Make Better Victims are creating a new sound, mixing a rock band approach and flavoring with synth electronica that is normally only heard in house music and dub. The combination of this sound and the live visuals make a BMBV show something that is attracting fans in the Texas region and rapidly growing.
Singer / guitarist Ryan Holley (A+ Machine, Eyes Burn Electric), Guitarist Jonathan Erickson (Mermaid Purse), Drummer Justin Hanrahan (AquaJones), Keyboardist Jon Dishon (Hollow) and Bassist Brad Byram (Canvas, Wartime Social) have come together to write hook laden rock songs with a electronica twist. Currently recording their first EP, the single Whiskey Kisses hints at a full fledged rock outfit, with layered guitars and electronica overtones, while delivering a huge anthemic chorus that will stick in your brain for several days.
Big things are on the horizon for Blondes Make Better Victims, make sure your on board for the ride.
