Blänk – Tears Run Dry/Grip It

Blänk

So we may be a month late to this but good things come to those who wait and all that. Blänk are a Swedish trio blending indie pop and hip-hop, and Tears Run Dry is their first release in three years and the first from their upcoming album Only Built for Northern Lights. Here they collaborate with Noonie Bao (best known to us as a co-writer with Charli XCX and Say Lou Lou) and it’s a thing of minimalist beauty. They’ve followed it up now with Grip It, which is far more towards the hip-hop end of the spectrum but well worth investigating also. Looking at their Soundcloud page, old track Do This Thing is also excellent and shows yet another side to them. We’re suddenly quite intrigued by these guys and are now eagerly awaiting their album on 9 March.
