With three full length LPs to their name, Vancouver psych rock outfit Yukon Blonde return with 'Love The Way You Are'.
The garage party anthem moves on a gritty electric rhythm strut, with the chorus blooming in a gang-vocal sing-a- long: “If you want something baby, go out and get it.”
“This song is about a friend of mine who was going through a tough time as a creative person”, Jeffrey Innes of the band says. “She felt that she was being objectified and mistreated because she was a woman and different. Whenever she would do something brilliant, dudes would swoop in and either 'help her' finish the project, steal it completely or try and capitalize off her.”
“So I secretly wrote this song, and ironically, it's our first single off the record. Maybe we'll make a ton of money off it. Anyways, I think it's important to let your friends know they're worth it”.
Following a recent European tour with The Rural Alberta Advantage, they’re headed for the festival scene in their home country this summer, beginning with Toronoto’s CBC Music Festival on May 26.
