Artist of the day: Blondes Not Bombs
From the ashes of No Recess comes Blondes Not Bombs, a fun, passionate duo consisting of former No Recess drummer Tommy Cornillow and singer-keyboardist Theresa Jeane, who's got a Kate Nash-Nellie McKay vibe.
With influences like Dresden Dolls, Mates of State and the Ting Tings, their piano-driven alt-pop sound is upbeat, catchy and quirky, with an almost theatrical energy. They just finished a three-song EP that's available at their shows.
Blondes Not Bombs -- yes, their name comes from a Flight of the Conchords song -- perform at 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Pegasus Lounge in Tampa. Tickets are $5-$7. Click here to listen to an mp3 of their song I Said.
