Amanda Blank is going to be on everybody’s party playlists soon enough. This newcomer from Philadelphia has lots of friends with notable names that she collaborates with such as Spank Rock, Switch, Diplo, M.I.A. and Santigold —and she is joining them in becoming one of the hottest names in the industry.
Blank’s music is a mix of hip-hop and techno. Her rap track ‘A Love Song’ has an old-school vibe, but Blank keeps it fresh by including samples from Santigold’s ‘I’m A Lady’. Other tracks like ‘Might Like You Better’ give off more of a dance vibe. But, they aren’t your typical club songs; Blank’s music remains innovative and original no matter what the style.
Blank has been a busy lady as of late, her album ‘I Love You’ just released, and a summer tour with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs just wrapped up. But this lady isn’t taking a breather, she is joining the Brooklyn duo Matt and Kim on tour in North America this fall. So if you don;t want to fall behind, be sure to keep an ear out for Amanda Blank and all the hype she brings with her.
