Wildcard (week 22):
Yukon Blonde – Too Close To Love

Yukon Blonde hasnโ€™t been Yukon Blonde all the time. In 2005, they started as Alphababy. After two EP under that moniker, they changed their name to Yukon Blonde in 2009. The band is Canadian five-piece, who specialize in jangly indie pop/rock. However, their latest four singles, all of which will probably be featured on their next album Critical Hit (due for 22 June), have a more poppy sound. The reason is clear: the album was produced by Tony Hoffer (who worked with Air, Beck, The Kooks and zillions more).

Opening with pulsating synths, Yukon Blondeโ€™s latest single Too Close To Love ticks all the right boxes, as far as Iโ€™m concerned. It even echoes Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, which canโ€™t be wrong. The song, inspired by Milan Kundera’s โ€˜The Unbearable Lightness Of Beingโ€™, is this weekโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This means the song has the most prominent place on this blog for a full seven days. That should give you more than enough time to fall in love with it, like I did.

You can find all Wildcards of the year so far in this playlist.
