Artist: BLVTH X TAIIME
Stands out: Dark vibe, experimental pop
If you like: Banks
We are LOVING this new track that we recently came across. Its dark energy and thumping drums reminded us of an early Banks sound with a twist. We thought this song was really original, it’s definitely dark alt-pop but there’s an experimental side to it that gave it an edge.
In a small Kreuzberg studio during the cold depths of Berlin winter, producer/vocalist BLVTH and production-duo TAIIME crafted their first collection of songs to be released as the ‘HOW TO DELETE MYSELF’ EP. The follow up to their acclaimed debut ‘Tokyo Run’ is the ‘Police’ single which drops on 20th April via Majestic Casual Records.
Berlin based director and videographer Felix Aaron has created a futuristic world to embody the sound which the trio have created. His first work on ‘Tokyo Run’ set the stage in an alternative future, where the air outside is almost unbreathable and gangs supply the city with black market oxygen. His interpretation on ‘Police’ follows the story through a neon soaked alternative future in which men gamble for fast money in illegal fist fights in the female ruled black market of Berlin’s Chinatown. Delivering a modern aesthetic with strong cinematography, the video adds flawless complement to the trio’s sound.
