Mykki Blanco – Mykki
Sep 16th, Dogfood Music Group / !K7 | Buy
Mykki has a refined sound seldom found on a debut. Despite its short length – at just forty minutes – the album still feels grandiose and ambitious. Production from Woodkid and Jeremiah Meece gives the album airy synths and hard-hitting drums throughout.
Blanco’s voice is firstly an instrument, layered onto the production seamlessly. Even with the focus on sonics, Blanco takes the opportunity to talk about the pitfalls of social media on ‘Loner’ and opens up personally on ‘You Don’t Know Me’. “Fuck being low-key,” Blanco raps on ‘Fendi Band’ – ironic, as Mykki is unlikely to move Blanco out from their already established status in the underground scene.
Mykki Blanco plays The Exchange on 6th October. You can grab tickets here.
