South Florida is a haven for indie music, and Palomino Blond is the next to carry the torch. The band fuses together the best of pop-punk and emo-tinged performances, lending to one of the most dynamic live shows in the scene. Their record will, without a doubt, expand their audience from the peninsula to a wider stage.

Palomino Blond is a band from Miami, FL who came up in the tradition of the suburban D.I.Y. all-ages community. After filling countless rooms with earlier projects, the members came together over a shared love of classic alternative rock, and released demos during the Summer of 2018. The demo has seen relentless support from their homegrown fanbase and regional college radio stations alike.

Their demo; the single "Creature Natural" (along with its music video directed by Jon and Michael Cuartas); and frequent, dynamic live sets in their home state of Florida have solidified Palomino Blond as "next to carry the torch" (Amanda Starling, The Alternative) of indie rock from their home state to a larger audience.

The band is currently recording their debut LP with Jonathan Nunez (guitarist of SFL's Torche and founder of Nunez Amplification). They are slated to play some of Florida's most popular festivals in the coming months and show no signs of slowing down.
