Blondage debuts "Dive"

Blondage debuts "Dive"

‘Dive’ is the infectious new single from Blondage, the Danish duo consisting of Pernille Smith-Sivertsen and Esben Andersen formerly known as Rangleklods. The track is the first off the debut EP, set to be released later this year.

“a track that’s crying out for summer sun” - i-D

The track’s bubbly pop and seamless production have been making waves in the media following it’s premiere on i-D.

“Dive is about being broke, but happy, wild and careless, and suffering the consequences.” says Esben. “One of those hot summer days where you feel like the world is ending but you just don’t care.”

The track oscillates between this carefree happiness (as in the opening line “might be all out of money // but I’m all full of love”) and an underlying rootlessness as expressed by Pernille’s vocals to underline that “if I’m forever high // they’ll never see me low”.

Contemporary and direct, the track showcases the duo’s exceptional production. Crisp and to the point, the vocals and lead synthesizers deliver crystal clear hooks while playful samples and percussion spice up the driving beat.

On changing their name, Pernille says: “We’ve released records with Rangleklods that we’re extremely proud of. But we need a new beginning for us to keep evolving. We’re changing our name to Blondage, and our main focus is to make edgy electronic pop tunes. The name Blondage is a contraction of ‘blond’ and ‘bondage’ and to us it combines naivety and daydreaming with aggression and sensuality. It has given us an empty canvas and a greater creative energy than we’ve ever had”.
