BLONDER is back at it with another indie rock track perfect for your summer. “Just Because” comes of the band’s EP, “$5”.
With just one listen, you become entranced in the guitar groove and punk-esque vocals. Though the riffs are repetitive, it feeds into the catchiness of the entire track. Mixed with electronic flourishes, the familiar elements of the song are turned on their head.
“Just Because” betrays the fact that BLONDER has been informed by the larger-than-life New York indie rock sound that once promoted groups like The Strokes.
“The song was written at the end of a relationship I was in, and it’s kind of about that inertia that keeps things going even as they’re slowly falling apart,” says Anastasakis. “Sort of a companion piece to our song ‘In and Out.'”
