Visually, Blanka's music video for "Fall In Love," premiering today on The FADER, could be shot from the POV of a cyborg with heat vision goggles who probably shouldn't have taken that second pill. Footage of raves is colorized and data-moshed into oblivion, reflecting the apparent dehumanization in the stark post-industrial propulsion of the Montreal duo's song.
"'Fall In Love,' lyrically, is somewhat of a meditation on the ceremony of love, while the production is an exercise on the drums," Blanka explained to The FADER over email. "Before going on tour to Europe last year, I was starting to get extremely anxious about our first EP Yasuda pigeonholing us into the post-punk genre. So this track was built with an underlying notion of wanting to protest against our former songs and move in a new direction."
Blanka just wrapped mixing a new album, and will head on a tour of Europe soon. Check out dates below.
