Following on from their successful single ‘Tears Run Dry’, Swedish/Sápmi (Lapland) electronic/RnB/hip-hop trio Blänk have just premiered their new single ‘Grip It’ with Wonderland.
The single comes from their forthcoming album ‘Only Built For Northern Lights’ which is due out on 9th March via Grind Records.
Wonderland say that the song is, “It flickers back and forth from feminine whispers, to warped bass vocals, punctuated by dry laughs adding a playfulness. A bold and self-assured track, you’ll find yourself pressing repeat until you can rap along perfectly.”
The last single ‘Tears Run Dry’ was premiered on The Line Of Best Fit in December, the track has done over 12,000 plays and 350 likes on Soundcloud.
‘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 with intimate whispers from female vocalist Lina Öhman and old school Hip-Hop vocals from Simon Trabelsi, which switch between smooth and distorted as the track builds. 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.
We encourage you to head over to Wonderland and check out/share the new single now.
