Blonde Redhead usa Blonde Redhead is an American band consisting of three expatriates who started out as a dissonant noise-rock band and slowly morphed into a band capable of producing albums of entrancing dream-pop rock with an emotional punch. They are widely admired in alternative and independent rock circles and continue to widen their palette of sounds with every release. Identical twin brothers Amedeo and Simone Pace met two female Japanese art students who were also interested in starting a band. The four realized an instant connection with each other, and started hanging out together and rehearsing in earnest. The band quickly forged a sound that was influenced by the no-wave bands of the late 70's and early 80's. Blonde Redhead debuted in with the seven-inch single "Big Song" and that, as well as their growing live reputation, brought them to the attention of Sonic Youth drummer, Steve Shelley, who had recently started his own record label, Smells Like Records, and was looking for bands to produce and sign.
