I’m Not A Blonde is an Italian-American duo based in Milano.
Chiara Castello and Camilla Benedini write electro-art-pop songs that bring together their many different influences: beats and synths from the 80s, brit-punk guitars and melodies from the 90s to create a unique world of their own. Their music and live performances are based on a blend of the 2 different personalities: Camilla is an architect that loves a rigorous, sleek style, while Chiara, who studied art, prefers to include a bit of noise and
disorder around her. Their musical world reflects a desire to find a balance between different aspects of experiences and perceptions including humor vs melancholy, minimalism vs art-pop, digital vs analog, lightness vs seriousness.
From 2016 they release their music worldwide with the Italian Label Inri but from 2019 they collaborated on the GSA territories with the label and press office Backseat.
After that they decided to focus on the German territory, that they consider very close to their music. All Rooms booking agency joined the team on the same year.
In 2021 they won the Italia Music Export office‘s call for application, that will support them for the promotion abroad for the new Album Camilla and Chiara enjoy playing live and this is reflected in their direct and powerful duo performance. On stage they create their
songs with loops that overlap musical structures. Voices, guitars and synths add up to create a sound that fills the area giving the feeling of a full band. During the past years they’ve toured Europe taking part in important music festivals. They’ve shared stages with
international artists like Duran Duran, Moderat, Soulwax, Peaches, Hurts and Ghostpoet.
