Every now and then, there’s a point at which you have to say “fuck it” and start tagging everything you possibly can. Works of art, hand-rainbow banners, other graffiti — it’s all fair game. Minneapolis-based noise-hawkers BNLX have reached that point, and they’ve taken it upon themselves to put their name on everything imaginable around their hometown.
“The Devil You Know” is a blast of swampy distortion and chugging rhythms that throw everything into disarray, as guitarist/vocalist Ed Ackerson proves when he tags over the star for Polara, which was Ackerson’s first band. Check out the video below.
As mentioned, Minneapolis’ BNLX were just in NYC for a couple shows. Now back in their home state, the band have left us a present in the form of a new video for “Vibrant,” a song off last year’s full-length debut. The clip was filmed on their recent visit to Amesterdam and it premieres in this post. Watch it below.
Meanwhile BNLX are prepping another of their “serial indoctrination campaigns,” like the quarterly EPs that first introduced the band. They’re also about to play their first-ever West Coast shows, including dates in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those are listed below.
