Brooklyn-based, Aussie artist LANKS send us hair-raising chills through his latest single “Cold Blood.” Written with Dutch songwriter Jantine Heij and Aussie producer Tentendo, the song is a hauntingly gorgeous piece where LANKS’ burning croons paired with ethereal synths yield a lush mesmeric sound that hooks you immediately. The chest-swelling atmosphere radiate a smoky intensity that makes “Cold Blood” a treat to your auditory sense:
On his latest release, LANKS stated: “Originally written at a writing camp by Australian publishing houseNative Tongue in 2019, with two people that became good friends and I stayed with in LA later that year for a writing trip, Jantine Heij and Tentendo. Jantine is a phenomenal top-line writer (collaborating with artists such as Skrillex), and Tentendo, an intuitive producer. This session flowed so naturally, as if we’d all known each other for years. I then took it to Andrei Eremin and we worked on it together with Ross Beaton (from Dorsal Fins), Justin Olsson (my drummer), and Anita Hilman (an amazing cellist from Melbourne).”
