Hailing from inner-western Melbourne, Biond (Rose Muller) has come a long way in her short career. From studying a jazz degree and fronting big bands and jazz ensembles, Biond grew out of a love for 80s classics and guilty pleasure pop. She’s been playing shows around Melbourne for a year and a bit, slowly but surely building her profile with two singles and support slots with artists like Essie Holt.
Biond’s music is glittery fem-pop fuelled by her powerful vocals. Each release is a confident step forward, as she continues to carve out a space that’s uniquely her own.
Her third single, ‘TFW’, is a power-pop anthem about sexual freedom. It unveils an emerging theme throughout Biond’s releases: the value of relationships in an era of instant gratification and infinite opportunity. Her fierce vocals embody themes of desire and empowerment, while the pulsating soundscape draws you into the drama of a dangerous rendezvous.
This new single arrives off the back of ‘Like He Never’, Biond’s breakthrough second single. Triple J Unearthed gave it its premiere and added it to rotation, calling it "A song for our generation". The track also generated heaps of Triple J attention, receiving spins on both Good Nights and Home & Hosed.
Biond reminds us that a great pop song can make you feel pretty bloody fantastic, and that dancing and crying are not always mutually exclusive.
