Good Will Come to You is the forthcoming full-length from singer/songwriter by Un Blonde, the album drops On September 22nd, via Flemish Eye Records. Recently Un Blonde shared a new version of “The Real Way”.
Un Blonde is the solo project of young Montreal-based musician, producer, and composer Jean-Sebastian Audet. Audet’s musical world is a constantly mutating series of landing points and crossovers, forging unique connections between contemporary RnB, cubist avant-funk, low-key soul, lo-fi indie pop, and confessional songwriting. This heady mixture is combined with subtle, intuitive genius in Good Will Come To You, an album initially self-released on a limited cassette run.
Jean-Sebastian says of the song “There are a handful of recurring lyrical and melodic notions that, in repetition, express the nuance of a particular sentiment that the original record may not have touched on. “The Real Way” that finds itself on the LP is the searching — the reprise displays what was found.”
As the first fruit of his newly-minted recording contract with Alberta’s Flemish Eye Records (home of Chad VanGaalen, Women, Preoccupations, Braids), the remastered album will be made available once again worldwide on LP and digital formats.
The music of Un Blonde is conceptualized, written, and recorded completely by Audet himself in apartments and rehearsal spaces around Montreal with a very simple and limited recording setup. This approach is a key element of his music. “I spend every day waiting for things to say, and saying them right away”, he says.
In the live realm, Un Blonde exists as a series of constantly shifting permutations, adding and subtracting members to find the right sound. Over the years, the band’s live scope has ranged from large ensembles featuring extra drummers, percussionists, and guitarists, to a stripped-down trio that focuses on group improvisation to raise existing material to new heights. Audet’s live accomplices include members of Nap Eyes, Homeshake, Lab Coast, Monomyth, and Tough Age.
Good Will Come To You comes out on September 22nd on LP and digital formats featuring newly reworked album art and a bonus download-only album of b-sides and alternate versions.
