A song oozing with charisma and bombastic charm. Blank Slate is a gem of a song that embraces its nostalgic routes without ever losing its uniqueness.
HMLTD are one of those rare acts that can simultaneously come across as both nostalgic and progressive. This is evident in their new single, Blank Slate, a track that is striking in its instrumentation, lyricism and delivery. The latest from the London based art rockers is a call back to more theatrical times in the music industry, the ornate musicality providing a stark contrast to the lyrical themes of revolution and rebellion.
Spychalski’s voice cuts through the noise. At times Bowie-like, he is a charismatic story teller, passionate in his delivery, selling his dystopian vision and bringing the listener along for the ride. Blank Slate is a bold piece of music setting a high benchmark for other bands to reach. It is a genre elevating single and an exciting addition to the bands impressive catalogue.
