Vancouver, BC-based dream-pop band, Blonde Diamond have unveiled a video for their new single, “4AM Eternal”. The single has been said to be equal parts mysterious and approachable, swirling guitars are accentuated by arpeggiated bass synths and snap-tight rhythms. The video features frontwoman Alexis Young, radiant as ever in a leopard print outfit, as well as various other ensembles that stand out on the vibrant red background. I feel as though the video is reminiscent of the ’80s, and it suits the track perfectly.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I’m Alexis, the self-proclaimed “Main B*tch” of Blonde Diamond, which is a dream-pop band previously described as “simultaneously dreamy and vicious”. We have had the fortune of touring across 4 continents, had a viral hit on Spotify with our first single “Feel Alright” (released under our former name Youngblood) and are really just a band of 4 best friends who feel pretty grateful to be making weird music and sharing it with the world.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
We are all suckers for the somewhat traditional pop structure, so we’ll typically have that as a skeleton for a song, but surrounding that we create atmospheric, lush instrumentals and lyrically I try to dig a bit deeper to explore what it is that makes us all such emotional human beings.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
We are playing an interactive Valentine’s day show in Vancouver at the H.R. MacMillan Planetarium, which will be a really special one-off show where you can fly through space while we serenade you in the space theatre. After that we are currently working on some Spring tour dates, so follow along for updates on where we’ll be heading.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Well, we just released our latest single, 4AM Eternal, which is a self-ode to sexual autonomy and feeling confident and liberated by releasing yourself to the strange. So I would start there, it’s best accompanied by the music video. 😉
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Currently, I’m really into U.S. Girls, I think they are incredible, and I look forward to one day catching them live! Also, Kaytranada has been a fave for a while now, and fellow Vancouverite’s Peach Pit are really killing it right now!
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
