Yukon Blonde Return with 'Critical Hit' LP
You can hear the album's "Love the Way You Are" now
Published Apr 20, 2018After sharing two new songs with a 10-inch release late last year, Yukon Blonde have now revealed those tracks to be part of their fourth full-length album.
Titled Critical Hit, the album will arrive June 22 through Dine Alone. Thirteen tracks in length, the Tony Hoffer-produced LP is described as "a deeply personal proposition on dating in the digital age" that finds the band leaning further into pop and electronic elements.
"It's hard to do a song by song breakdown, because as much sarcasm and wit as there is on this record, there is some intensely private shit in the lyrics too, and sometimes the vibe is just more our obsession with synthesizers and drum machines, aesthetics over lyrics," vocalist Jeff Innes said in a statement.
Having already shared "Crazy" and "Emotional Blackmail," the band have now premiered the song "Love the Way You Are." You can take in its gang-vocal chorus in the player below following Critical Hit's tracklist.
