Blanks releases the summery ‘Favourite Nightmare’

YouTuber Blanks has transitioned from the online platform to the world of music with such ease and previous release ‘Sweaters’ is proof of that. He has now dropped his new track ‘Favourite Nightmare’ for your listening pleasure!

The pure Eighties electro-pop production with rolling electric guitar, and groovy bass lush synths creates an upbeat get up and dance vibe from the off as Blanks explains to a mystery female, “Frappuccinos baby, they taste so fabricated, I guess that you don’t see the metaphor”. The song lyrically is bitterness meets tongue-in-cheek. 

Fans of singer-songwriter Sam Sparro may appreciate Blanks’ songwriting abilities whilst admirers of MGMT and Empire From The Sun will enjoy the radio-friendly late-night city sounds that paint images of neon lights and packed streets. 

The memorable chorus with added tribal drum beat provides ‘Favourite Nightmare’ with the potential to become a summer anthem and follow in the footsteps of The Killers ‘Mr Brightside’ and Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson’s ‘Uptown Funk’ to name a couple. 

Vocally, Blanks understands that his voice is well-suited in the pop genre and has embraced it with clear annunciation and a cheery attitude. 

In conclusion, once you hear the new single you might find yourself thinking “I can’t get you out of my head!”

Blanks’ new single is ‘Favourite Nightmare’ and is out now.

In addition, Blanks will be performing a headline show on Saturday 10th October 2020 at Colours in Hoxton, London, United Kingdom. This event has been rescheduled from Saturday 21st April 2020. Tickets remain valid and the event is subject to government advice. Tickets can be purchased here:
