Blondestreak fits nicely on the shelf between Garbage and No Doubt. Lyricist and lead singer - Victoria Woods intimately reveals her real world experiences, one moment singing about God, then in the next moment about her homicidal wishes or her girl-girl attractions. Drummer/producer Ray Palagy sound designs the tracks with quirky, futuristic drum grooves, and a creamy mix of electric and acoustic guitars. Blondestreak delivers serious pop songs while performing alchemy on a heart and spirit level. The previous CD 'Saturn's Child' has charted in CMJ's top 30 and has independently worked it's way onto commercial radio playlists. The single, 'MaryAnne,' combines lush harmonies with a simple yet irresistible guitar hook. The song captures the innocent yearning for an old friend, compounding it with an urban urgency that makes this tune one that college radio has jumped on. Blondestreak has embraced the Internet with a strong presence. The group's previous effort - 'Saturn's Child' made it onto MP3.com's list of favorite NYC bands. In 1999, Saturn's Child landed a finalist position on 'TheUns'- a national Internet contest sponsored by 7UP and Sonicnet/MTV. Since June 2000, they landed 3 songs as top finalists on garageband.com with 'Poptart' reaching ..4 last month on this chart of favorite songs by unsigned artists worldwide.
