Blonde Hightower

Blonde Hightower

 New York City, New York, USA

If you took the sounds of Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Pavement, Nada Surf and the Pixies...chewed them up, spit them out and baked them into a nice birthday cake.


Forming in Brooklyn, NY in 2011, Blonde Hightower began as a conversation between Gabriel Rattiner (vocals and guitar) and Tyler Jontz (guitar) when their previous bands they were playing in (Savoir Adore, The Grates) played a show together. The band went through a few mutations before moving towards the sound they have now. Joined shortly after by Eric Pearson on drums and Kevin Plunkett on bass.

The band is currently writing material with a debut release planned this Spring.


The MI-5 Demos (released Dec 2011)
