Lanks Reveals Video For ‘Bitter Leaf’ + Playing Bigsound Next Month
“Amazing voice and solid production.”
– INDIE SHUFFLE
“Start paying attention.”
“Better and better with every release.”
– TRIPLE J UNEARTHED
With a triple j Unearthed BIGSOUND showcase on his radar and fresh from an epic guest appearance at Splendour in the Grass performing Hype Machine topping Just A Gent collaboration ‘Heavy As A Heartbreak’, producer and multi-instrumentalist LANKS today reveals the official video for latest single ‘Bitter Leaf,’ premiered via global arts and culture channel NOWNESS. Having just supported future soul-queen Ngaiire on her national sold out tour, LANKS’ visual manifestation for ‘Bitter Leaf’ is a testament to the power of the internet, bringing together a team of creatives from opposite sides of the world in this LA-shot choreographed masterpiece.
LANKS stumbled upon LA-based choreographer Leona Morimune scrolling through Instagram, and enamoured by his work, reached out in hopes of a collaboration. Morimune, who was keen to get involved, contacted director Nathan Kim to join. In a strange turn of events, Kim had actually been a dancer in the clip for ‘The Acid,’ co-directed by RY X – LANKS’ cousin. The collaboration between the three parties resulted in an incredibly raw and beautiful expression of ‘Bitter Leaf.’ Click on image to watch below:
‘Bitter Leaf’ follows single and video ‘Golden Age’, which hit #11 in the HypeMachine charts, accumulated close to one million Spotify streams and spurred a successful east coast tour earlier this year. Initially capturing the attention of the blogosphere worldwide with his EPs ‘Thousand Piece Puzzle’ and ‘Banquet,’ which spurred standout single ‘Hold Me Closer,’ LANKS has shared the stage with electronic elite such as High Highs, Airling, Broods, SAFIA and The Acid.
