Curly Blonde consists of dynamic duo Brynn O'Connor and Fergus Selkirk-Bell. The boys hail from the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne and started making alternative indie rock/pop in the midst of lockdown, the event which inspired the making of their new single ‘Room 309’.


Brought about by a cabin-fever fuelled spiral, ‘Room 309’ is an upbeat bop filled with bright guitar riffs, catchy percussion and unique vocals that have a clear and distinct Aussie accent. It’s a sun-soaked anthem perfect for putting on when having day drinks with your mates or when in need of a feel-good boogie, the entire thing is wholesome to say the least. 


But despite its cheery sound, ‘Room 309’ deals with heavy themes of feeling dissatisfied with how life has turned out, the monotony of everyday life and wondering if you’ll ever reach your goals. Alongside the song is a video to accompany the track which sees the two trying to keep themselves entertained in the midst of isolation, perfectly capturing the tedium and repetition of day-today life in lockdown.


“Behind the rolling riffs, dreamy rhythms and vocals, the lyrics of the song stipulate someone who had such big imaginings for their life and set aspirational goals growing up, yet, they’re extremely unsatisfied with how things have turned out and whether they can ever have a meaningful life. It’s a pretty pertinent song, because I think most people in our age demographic are starting to realise and have thoughts along those lines.”


Similarly to many across the country and the globe, the boys lost their jobs due to COVID-19. ‘Room 309’ takes a deep dive into the impact that this has on the life of a twenty-something-year-old who was once filled with high aspirations.

Go give the tune a listen, l guarantee you’re gonna love it.
