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.'
-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.
