Except from The Untitled’s exclusive interview with Debbie Harry:
After forty years existing as figureheads of rock, Blondie is back with a new album, a world tour and enough buzz to have snagged a number of headlining slots at the South By Southwest music festival this past March. During the 1970s, a crop of seminal rock bands burst onto the downtown New York scene, chief among them Blondie. Fronted by co-founder and lead singer Debbie Harry, the band came to embody a new era of genre-melding music, taking elements of new wave and punk, and eventually merging them with pop, rock, reggae and the soon-to-conquer disco scene. The result was a sound definitively their own. The excitement over the band’s recent rekindling should come as no surprise. Co-founder and lead singer Debbie Harry spoke exclusively to The Untitled Magazine about Blondie’s history, their reunion, their new album, and how they all but predicted today’s fusion-heavy musical soundscape.
