Blanks is not your traditional YouTuber. Rather, he uses his online presence to spread his unlimited love and passion for music, ensuring that he is set apart from the crowd. Taking all your followers from one platform to another has not gone well for every YouTube star in the past, but Blanks is one who has bucket loads of talent, as well as a genuine interest in interacting with his followers online (to the extent that they have even written songs together via Instagram polls). This self-described “overexcited music boy” has moved seamlessly from YouTube into the world of music, with his latest release ‘Sweaters’ - an introvert’s anthem and ode to cosy nights in.
Blanks’ music has always been characteristically upbeat, with catchy hooks and happiness spilling out of every note. ‘Sweaters’ is no exception, and with its hook line “why don’t we stay inside for tonight?” echoing in the heads of everyone who’s ever been to a party and felt less than comfortable. The song makes use of Blanks’ signature clap-along beats and 80s-influenced basslines, all held together by Blanks’ note-perfect performance which tackles an impressive vocal range with absolute ease. Blanks was inspired to write ‘Sweaters’ when he attended a typical party in LA and (aside from a highlight of the night when he met the legendary Quincy Jones!) didn’t feel at home. He listened to his own energy levels and left, returning home to cosy up in a big sweater, and writing this song.
The release of ‘Sweaters’ comes at a very exciting time for Blanks. Heading into the new year with an incredibly well-received performance at Eurosonic festival under his belt, this self made pop star is looking forward to a headline slot at Vidcon London from the 20th-23rd February 2020, as well as a headline show on the 21st April at Colours Hoxton and an exciting spot on the bill at The Great Escape festival in Brighton, 13th-16th of May 2020.
