...It’s been nearly 3 years ... now the wait is almost over... it’s time to wake up 'sleeper'!
Young Art Records and Canadian musician and producer RYAN Playground have teamed up on “Luminaire” the second single off the label’s forthcoming project Young Art Sound II due May 3rd. The single serves as RYAN’s latest release and is accompanied with an introspective and glitch-infused music video.
The visual sees the former model illuminated by a single light bulb in a dark room, bringing to light the heartfelt lyrics and solemn production on the emotive track. “Luminaire” follows the project’s first single “Strange Froot” feat. Ambré by Grammy-nominated producer and label head TOKiMONSTA.
South African MC Yugen Blakrok is on a roll. Two months after releasing a music video for "Carbon Form," the first single to her upcoming album, she unleashes another video for the album's second single "Picture Box."
"Fire was the first storyteller, now we gather around a television like in times past. We mimic and echo shadows of ourselves in alternate dimensions through the picture box; characters that influence our thoughts and lives on this timeline. Where do they go when we change the channel or switch off ? The mind cannot imagine what does not already exist."
NBHAP are praising 2nd blood's debut EP as follows: "Thank god, beloved Danish artist Trentemøller is usually quite picky when it comes to signing other artists to his own label In My Room. Because when he actually does you can be sure to get quite marvellous material. Danish artist Silas Tinglef is the latest one to join the small gang. His alter ego 2ND BLOOD delivers finest dark wave pop delicacies that sound a bit like Trentemøller’s usual output but also takes influences from all the other artists Silas has been worked with – The Raveonettes and Jacob Bellens, for example."
Meanwhile 2ND BLOOD released the video for their song "Showtime". The growling bass sound, thundering guitar feedbacks and reverb drunken vocals amount to a post punk masterpiece. Check out the performance video
