The Blow is Jona Bechtolt and Khaela Maricich. The two have been working together as The Blow since 2004 when they recorded a limited edition EP called “Poor Aim: Love Songs”. It quickly became clear that the results of their combined forces flexed with a muscle that had a range far beyond the limited edition market. United by a shared affection for the sparkling production styles of mainstream radio, and both raised with deep roots in the DIY scenes of the Pacific Northwest, the duo makes fractured pop chart toppers to seduce all manner of hearts out of their cases, onto the floor. Jona's percussive savvy bumps and trips under Khaela's intimate, insistent vocals.
No-wave and glitch-hop, club anthems and doo-wop, all party together in the architecture created by The Blow's sound.
Their new album, Paper Television, will be released on September 18th from the Tomlab records...
