New Video: Blondfire, ‘Waves’

Watch Blondefire's "Waves" video.

Blondfire’s heading back to the desert in their “Waves” video.

Didn’t we just get back from the desert? Coachella may be over, but L.A.’s Blondfire keeps the sandy dream alive in their new video for “Waves,” with Gus Black-directed imagery that skips the beach in favor of warmer, thirstier climes. For the ocean-oriented song, Blondfire’s Erica Driscoll heads deep into the dunes, wandering through the the sand and dancing in the camera-melting heat, without even an iced latte to cool her down. (IT IS ICED LATTE SEASON, and no one is more excited about it than us.)

There’s nothing dry about the song, an intriguing slice of acoustic singer-songwriter strumming that bursts into a synth dance-pop chorus. “They can carry you all the way to me/ they can pull you out to the deep blue sea/ oh, waves/ there are waves,” Driscoll sings, and it sounds like she’s got more than an afternoon of surf lessons in mind. The band’s on tour now with Foals and Surfer Blood, with their debut EP, Where The Kids Are, out since the winter tundra of November. No wonder she’s ready for some sun.
