Blond:ish set for Australasian Tour
The fun-loving duo of Anstascia and Vivie-Ann came together as Blond:ish in 2008, and have since brought their otherworldly electronic sound to a slew of club shows, festival bookings and productions. Their travels have included numerous appearances at Burning Man, leaving its enigmatic mark on the duo and inspiring their creative process, resulting in a string of impressive tracks and finally, the release of their first album ‘Welcome to the Present’ in 2015. The spiritual energy of the pair has even found its way to remixing duty for names as big as Depeche Mode.
A highlight of 2018 was their Blond:ish presents: A B R A C A D A B R A party in Mexico back in January, featuring a curated line-up of artists matching their own spirited creativity. Following this, they have continued to bring their uplifting liveliness to all corners of the globe this year with an impressive number of shows across the continents, with the year still far from over.
The Canadian duo returns to Australia for their most comprehensive tour yet, which includes a visit to EMC (Electronic Music Conference) in Sydney where they will attend as guest speakers.
Viv and Anstascia are savvy travellers. Their original productions and DJ sets are inspired, in part, by their travels and spiritual encounters. Tribal dudes chant and hum on the duo’s new track, “Moonbow.” Dave Gahan, lead singer of Depeche Mode, provides the vocals in Blond:ish’s remix of the legendary English band’s “Should Be Higher.” Plus, they’re driven to share their passion with the world, one listener at a time. “A lot of people have never heard of us. Some people don’t take us seriously,” Anstascia said. “We’re doing our best to show that our music speaks for itself.”
