I’m Not a Blonde
ARTIST — pop, electronic
I’m Not A Blonde are the multi-instrumentalists and singer-songwriters Chiara “Oakland” Castello and Camilla Matley. Based in Milan they’ve been working together since 2014 writing electro-pop songs that bring together many different influences. Beats and synths from the ’80, Brit-punk guitars and melodies from the ’90 to create a world of their own that can in some moments recall Moloko, Le tigre and more recently Holy Ghost and Tune Yards. On stage they build their songs with loops that create overlapping musical structures. Voices, guitars and synths add up to create a sound that fills the space of a full band. The duo published their first album “Introducing I’m Not A Blonde” in February 2016 for the Italian label INRI. They toured Italy, playing in festivals as well as supporting bands like Hurts, Wolf Alice, Bluvertigo, Verdena, Planet Funk. Their latest album ‘The Blonde Album’ came out on January 26, 2018.
