Water running down into the waterways

Unfortunately, the band photo shoot fell on laundry day
“Wind Blows” isn’t the best song on Yukon Blonde‘s self-titled album, but it’s probably the catchiest. The chorus is a repetitive chant of “Wind blows / Can you hear the wind blow? / Listen to the raindrops / Outside of my window,” its cyclical melody sounding almost as if was pulled out of a nursery rhyme. With its mix of acoustic strumming, reverb-y surf leads and lush harmonies, it resembles a ’60s-infused take on Fleet Foxes‘ pastoral folk rock.

The album is the Vancouver band’s first full-length, and it drops next week (February 9) via Nevado. In the meantime, you can pick up the group’s EP Everything in Everyway, which I reviewed a while back for the Georgia Straight.
