Balancing a fine ear for tuneful progressions, an accessible & easy going, romantic story-line, and a beat that leans back & forth between acoustic world vibes, dance-hall, and classic pop, Mira is an addictive new hit that’s as seductive as it is energizing & catchy.
There’s a whole lot of emotion here, and this is what the song is – every aspect works hard to portray the weight of relationship struggles and false impressions.
Structurally thoughtful, classically colourful yet fusing elements of hip hop, RnB and pop in a fresh, contemporary fashion, the single offers up the rhythmic kick of rap alongside of the addictive and anthem-like power of a mighty hook melody.
The band set things up with style, progressing with endless levels of flair & ability. Their unity is on form, the music is ready & waiting to be that addictive little anthem that gets you geared up to take on the world with the best possible energy.
Stunning vocals, simple yet effective, passionate and emotive – these ride along the top of a professionally crafted soundscape that showcases a somewhat humble yet impressive gathering of musicians.
The Blankz are beginning to become something well worth tuning in for as a go-to soundtrack and indeed an unmissable live band – hopefully next summer sees Festival season scoop them up.
The details work well, the carefree storytelling style seems to make everything seem OK – as is the role of punk rock, to normalize volume & chaos or at least to draw attention to it & create a shared understanding.
A two-track bonanza, set to immediately take many listeners back to their teenage years – when punk-pop was the soundtrack to our carefree lives.
Jonathan Cavier’s recordings have an immediate & reliable warmth & vibrancy about them that you can return to again & again.
The hook is strong, bright sounding & memorable. The words are easy to learn & the result is a very heartfelt & thoughtfully crafted song.
Ricky Fitts had this attitude we all wanted to emulate. This idea of quitting a job on the spot to go pursue the passion of art was really important to us.
