#HipHop: Blank Premiere New Video With EARMILK
New album ‘Only Built For Northern Lights’ due out 9th March 2015
Following on from their successful single ‘Tears Run Dry’, Swedish/Sápmi (Lapland) electronic/RnB/hip-hop trio Blänk have just premiered their new video for ‘Grip It’ with EARMILK.
The video comes from their forthcoming album ‘Only Built For Northern Lights’ which is due out on 9th March via Grind Records.
The last single ‘Tears Run Dry’ was premiered on The Line Of Best Fit in December, the track has done over 14K plays and 400 likes on Soundcloud. Additionally, the single has done over 50K plays on Spotify.
‘Grip It’ sees Blänk step away from the electronic melancholy of the last single as they move towards a more groove-infused and bass driven sound, and the video compliments the track perfectly as Lina Öhman cruises around in her Dodge Challenger for her intimate whispering sections and Simon Trabelsi hits the streets with his old school Hip-Hop vocals from which switch between smooth and distorted as the track builds. The two compliment each other perfectly, and the contrast between styles and looks works perfectly. It’s catchy, well produced, and above all else… cool!
Their forthcoming album ‘Only Built For Northern Lights’ continues to develop Blänk’s unique sound mashing everything from Indie, Pop, old school Hip Hop, RnB and Sápmi Folk songs. It’s as diverse as it is accomplished and is not to be missed.
