About Blonde Redhead

Since 1993, the New York trio Blonde Redhead have been one of indie rock’s most exciting acts, taking the noise-rock influences that defined them at the outset and adding them to increasingly pop-minded songs. A chance meeting at a downtown restaurant led ​​to art students Kazu Makino and Maki Takahashi teaming up with twin brothers Simone and Amedeo Pace to form the band, which quickly attracted the attention of the New York experimental-music scene. Their self-titled debut, released in 1994, was produced by Steve Shelley of noise-rock kings Sonic Youth. Takahashi departed shortly thereafter, and Blonde Redhead carried on as an ever-evolving trio. Over the years, their musical palette has continued to grow, with Melody of Certain Damaged Lemons showcasing their keen ear for melodies, the pensive Misery Is a Butterfly smoothing out the rough edges, 23 shrouding their sound in shoegazer fuzz, and Barragán stripping the band’s songs down to their essence.
