10 for 2011: #6 – Blonde Louis

Last month, we asked you to vote for the top 10 artists you thought would be big in 2011. Coming in at #6 are the youngest band on the countdown, Blonde Louis…

Teens start new bands every day. What makes young Hertfordshire quartet Blonde Louis different? Well, for one thing, they definitely know how to write a pop song, and that’s never an easy thing to do. Below is an acoustic version of their first single, ‘Sleep on the Floor’; while we’re in the middle of frigid winter, there’s something inescapably engaging about four youngsters in t-shirts and shorts performing a great song in the middle of summer. (What appears to be a Rasta hat on one of them? Very funny.)

Let me reiterate, Blonde Louis are young. This is obvious by the excited way they respond to their fans on Facebook and Twitter – and who better to embrace social networking than today’s youth? Bands young and old have had to quickly adapt their outreach efforts to meet the demands and desires of people who are using Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Spotify, etc. This band keeps their fans updated constantly with new news and more recently, they hand-delivered gig tickets across England. When I asked the boys about this in a recent interview, they said it was great meeting their fans personally and having a spot of tea with some of them. Come now, what band of recent memory has ever done anything so nice? (I’ll be honest: I want them to come over to my house!) They may be new on the scene but Blonde Louis has quickly won many hearts. Definitely looking forward to their debut album sometime in the near future.
