Speaking in shadows and finding peace in the darkness, London-based trio Nocturne The Blonde craft tales of the night, for the night.
Inspired by the cool emotion, heavy synths and weird pop of The Normal, Fruer, Vince Clarke and The Europeans, they make electronic pop full of nostalgia for the future.
Nocturne The Blonde are vocalist Sam Winston and producers Pete Diggens and Matt Frost of Dark Globe fame. Winston caught the eye and ears of Diggens and Frost at an open mic night back in 2010 and they’ve been recording together ever since.
Their debut single will be Love Will Tear Us Apart, a retelling of the seminal Joy Division song. It’s due to be released through Boy George and Marc Vedo’s VG Records this summer 2011.
UPDATE: Nocturne The Blonde have been confirmed to perform live at HMV Forum (London) on 8th December 2011.Tickets on sale now at HMV Tickets and Ticketmaster.
