Split between Atlanta and the remote northern parts of Sweden – commonly known as Sápmi, the hip-hop meets electro-pop trio Blänk are currently getting ready to release their third album Weary Soul. Touching on topics such as self-destruction, angst, hope, and finally acceptance, the new record is as much uplifting as it is lachrymose, focusing on emotional emancipation and taking control of your own life.

With their new single Running, Blänk delve into a darker more downbeat atmospheric scandi-electro sound – a sensual, stripped back take on modern hip hop.

Weary Soul is powerful step forward for Blänk. The album is still heavily rooted in hip-hop, however the new record also sees Blänk move into a darker more downbeat atmospheric electro sound, which occasionally takes influence from intermittent soul-infused textures and at times owes itself to a subtle 80’s electro-pop inflection.

Speaking about the album Blänk said, “The album is about baring the pain and perspectives of the weary soul that’s lived through it all. At this point it’s not about being depressed or celebrating wins, it’s about recognizing all those things are a part of a larger journey that shapes the person one becomes.”

Blänk are:
