Brooklyn SynthPoppers Blank Paper’s new tune sees them setting the scene for their eagerly awaited new EP. After a string of well received tunes, this foursome are finally set to unleash the real thing. Having previously treated us to Step Into My Office and Ambien Blank Paper bring us something a little more soulful. This is Whip.

Whip sneaks a little R&B flavour into Blank Paper’s spikey SynthPop. Guiding their 80s influenced sound into more Electronic Soul of the era’s territory, Blank Paper deliver their usual icy keys and live drunk, but this time add  a bit of swing and a touch of boogie. It forms a nice contract with Marie Kim’s cutting vocal delivery and the stabbing chorus is pure nostalgia. Black Paper have been a bit of a dark horse in recent months and we’re left with the feeling that we’re looking forward to their EP a lot more that we were expecting to. Bring on July.

[Audio] Blank Paper’s ‘Step Into My Office’

We featured new music from Brooklyn SynthPoppers Blank Paper earlier this month with the lead track form their forthcoming new EP, Ambien. Here’s the second tune taken from the release. It’s called Step Into My Office and paints a business like metaphor for getting closer to a special someone; wich feels odd to us, we’ve always knows asking someone to “step into your office” as a metaphor for dumping someone. Oh, how the Atlantic separates us.

As with Ambien, Step Into My Office is a lush and woozy slice of very 80s ElectroPop. A churning synth bassline stagers the track forward like a drunken robot, dragging with it rich vintage synths and spacious melodies. Marie Kim’s vocals are pure 80s joy, a decade which loved an awkward metaphor, flowing over the track with an upbeat optimism that hides a slight air of menace. Another awesome tune from Blank Paper, we’re very much looking forward to the EP.

Brooklyn based SynthPoppers Blank Paper are about to release their new EP, the follow up to last years Tape Dreams EP. the lead tune, Ambien, is an insanely good, catchy, raw, ElectroPop stormer with an epic chorus.

Directed by Patrice Lighter, here’s the video for the track, a New York noir that sees the band coming to conflict.
