\"This is a great start to 2008. First the Glasswerk New Music Awards \'Best
Electronica Act\' award, then the Scrub Radio best Album nomination" - DawnyVic
2008 sees Scarlet BLONDE releasing a new track every month to an army of loyal fans
and an unsuspecting public at large. February\'s offering \'I Don\'t Know\' is released
via all good download stores on the 29th and is sure to further establish Scarlet
BLONDE in the mainstream consciousness.

Taken from the debut album \'Bedroom Superstars\' (hypermedia, 2007), collaborators
Ditch and DawnyVic serve up shimmering slices of pop candy much in the tradition of
their influences, which span just about everything from 80\'s synth, 70\'s punk, New
Wave, Dance, Hip-Hop and full-on in your face Rock.

This debut album is a powerful collection of tunes with a dark sexual, sensual edge
smartly constructed with a hint of sex and violence to excite and astound.
DawnyVic's impressively strong and dominant vocals and fretwork combined with Ditch
GBH\'s blistering keyboard virtuosity make this an electro-rock masterpiece.

\"...this ain\'t retro - this is cool, rockin\' twenty-first century pop-mongery, lean,
crisp and done to perfection! Scarlet BLONDE \"love pop music like it used to be\" and
they take all of those early influences and re-model aspects of them into one very
\'now\' sounding, intoxicating, wild brew of a musical beast. Scarlet BLONDE are
totally focussed and dedicated to their chosen musical direction and their combined
passion shows in their rock-solid and precisely crafted work - Scarlet BLONDE mean
business; they\'re a bit like a runaway train that\'s heading your way - still on the
rails, heavy with momentum and unstoppable.\" Toxic Pete

The duo\'s colourful past also forms part of their unique approach to music and life
in general, with an often acerbic wit seeping through their pop-rock wall of sound.

You know, just the usual stuff - like Ditch\'s \'perfect for the tabloids\' love-life
to DawnyVic\'s well-hailed axe mastery - which has landed her a seat among the UK\'s
rock royalty. Together, they form a most unusual synthesis that defies corporate
rock, and yet embraces perhaps its future form.

Already hailed by one UK reviewer as \'passionate, rock-solid and intoxicating\',
\'Bedroom Superstars\' features soon-to-be hits like the electro-rock \'Electric\'; hip
hop-tinged \'I Don\'t Know\' and the more deceptively electronic \'Whenever Whatever\'
hit NUMBER 1 in the US eMUSIC Industrial Charts after being selected by eMUSIC as
their \'Freshly Ripped\' Artist!

The EP also made a respectable showing in eMUSIC USA\'s House and overall Dance
charts, sitting at numbers 17 and 39 respectively!

The Whenever Whatever EP entered the Juno Rock/Indie charts on both sides of the
Atlantic rising into the top 10 above new releases from The Gossip. The Rakes,
Madness, Kings have Long Arms and Thom Yorke marking another milestone in their rise
after becoming the \'Best Electronica Act\' at the \'Glasswerk New Music Awards\' last
Containing 6 tracks- the original version plus 5 remixes- personally chosen by the
band from hundred\'s of entrants to the Sony\'s Acid Planet Remix Competition which
took place last Summer.
\"Whenever Whatever\" plays like an anthem from a club scene. It is a catchy track
with suitably angry and offensive lyrics. The vocal lead is full of attitude, which
complements the darker electronica accompaniment. \" Burst Radio

\"SB have taken electro and made it irresistibly ice cool slice of cocksure
rock n roll, full of suitable attitude and swagger. Violent post-punk vocals slither
above the throbbing industrial beats and wayward synths, sexy music by sexy people.\"

\"A violent synth beat reminiscent of those heady Sheffield days of the 80's. Stuff
dreams are made of... it knocks seven sorts of shit out of most of the indie based
guitar based bands that are spouting from every other myspace page. Oddly addictive\"
Get Ready to Rock

February 29th has been the traditional time that women can propose marriage. With
the release of 'I Don't Know' on the same day, A lyric about facing your fears and
pushing on through anyway, seems rather apt.
