Rlyblonde Releases Addictive New Pop-Rock Single “Dumb Blonde”

Teeming with buzzy guitar riffs and clever, confessional lyricism

rlyblonde – the project of Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Carina Allen – returns with her new single, “Dumb Blonde.” Teeming with buzzy guitar riffs and clever, confessional lyricism, “Dumb Blonde” is a wholly addictive pop-rock anthem. 

The song follows rlyblonde’s inner monologue as she fights against the little voice in her head that tells her everything is just a moment away from falling apart. “Life is unpredictable,” rlyblonde quips. “One day you’re on top of the world, the next day you’re having a meltdown…you’re never going to hit a point where you stop facing challenges, especially as an artist. So when things ARE good, you might as well enjoy it, even if it’s just for one night.”

The “Dumb Blonde” music video was produced and directed by rlyblonde through her new production company, HOT CREATIVE. Viewers who have seen past rlyblonde videos might recognize small easter eggs throughout the video — look out for old video outfits featured as props, callbacks to past releases, and a breaking of the fourth wall that mixes fantasy and reality.

Directing and producing my own videos is such an integral part of making music for me,” she elaborates. “I’m not just writing songs, I’m building an entire visual world for people to escape into.”

After years of being the go-to photographer, videographer and creative director for New York’s favorite indie acts, rlyblonde reintroduced herself in 2023 as a DIY rock darling with the release of her debut EP, ‘Fantasy.’ She released 5 self-directed & produced music videos alongside the EP, performed at iconic venues across New York City, and captured the attention of key tastemakers like The Luna Collective and Unpublished Magazine.

Keen to continue growing and evolving as an artist, rlyblonde has been working with producer and multi-instrumentalist Robbie Guariglia (The Veronicas, Oh Honey, Native Sun) and is now ready to reveal a whole new chapter of music. “It’s been such a gift to work with someone who is willing to take the time to properly flesh out a song and sound, who wants to really understand what is going on inside my brain, and who can help me translate all of that into my music,” rlyblonde explains of her experience working with Robbie on her new songs. “It’s been invaluable and I think it shows in the music.”
