Mikka Blank & Sanna-Pirita – ARGOS
ARGOS is blankTON recordings release number 3 and the first team-up of MIKKA BLANK with outstanding vocalist SANNA-PIRITA from Finland.
SANNA-PIRITA lends her characteristic intuitive singing – a form of meditation or spiritual exercise where the singer spontaneously expresses inner rhythms and feelings while shaping words in the process without following any known language – to the backdrop of the cinematic and dub-influenced electronica of MIKKA BLANK.
In “Argos”, SANNA-PIRITA demonstrates her full vocal versatility, ranging from hypnotic siren to intimate whisper and tender spoken word. Take a trip deep into the artists minds with this hypnotic gem of a track.
The ARGOS EP also comes with the stomping “Hundred Eyes Remix” by TURISTA aka Joao Gomes from Lisbon, Portugal, known for his awe-inspiring work on various independent movie-scores, giving a slight hint to 90ies-electronica with this fabulous rework. IAN JAMES SLADE did another rendition of the video especially for the remix:
