On the Verge: Blondfire

At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On the Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming.

This weeks’ artist On The Verge is brother-sister duo, Blondfire.  Erica and Bruce formed the band in 2004, and are now really starting to make some waves. Funny enough, the song that is doing this for them is their new single, “Waves.”   The indie pop band from Los Angeles, California released an EP in 2011 titled Where The Kids Are.  The EP contains four songs, including “Waves,” and is available on iTunes.  This EP gave a spark to Blindfire’s career.  In August 2011, they signed with Warner Bros. Music and Primary Wave Music.

They’ve spent the past few months on the road, touring around the country with some of the biggest bands in indie rock including Surfer Blood and Foals.  They’re coming back to the Boston area this week, this time with Kopecky Family Band.  They’ll be at Iron Horse Music Hall in Northhampton, MA on June 20th, and Brighton Music Hall in Boston on June 21st.

Be sure to tune in today at 4:15 PM to listen to this weeks’ On The Verge artist, Blondfire.  And don’t forget the name—they won’t be on the verge for much longer!
