Mykki Blanco’s brand new song of the summerListen here
Mykki Blanco announces a new EP, Postcards From Italia, out 22 September 2023 via Transgressive and shares a new single “Holidays In The Sun.”
Mykki Blanco, who British GQ Style has described as “one of the most arresting leftfield artists to have emerged in the last decade”, today unveils the release of an upcoming EP, Postcards From Italia, out 22 September 2023 via Transgressive. Produced again alongside electronic musician and producer FaltyDL, the 6 track Postcards from Italia EP looks to explore a side of Mykki’s sound that hasn’t been delved into before, described by Blanco as their “Italian cowboy era”.
The announcement arrives alongside the new single, “Holidays In The Sun”, the EP’s closing track and their first new music since the release of their critically acclaimed album, Stay Close To Music, in 2022. A funk-laden rave track with an unstoppable and irresistible beat, “Holidays In The Sun” embraces Mykki’s inimitable sound with added layers of 90s Euro dance music and summer fun influences.
Speaking of the new single, Mykki Blanco says: ““Holidays In The Sun” was created funnily enough in a basement in Portugal on Christmas Eve. Produced by William Eaves of Somerset, written by Mykki Blanco with additional writing and vocals by artist ZamZam, the song is a feel good summer anthem about lazy summer days swimming in the sea, hopping from one music festival to the next, feeling good about life and living la dolce vita soaking up the sun. The song is a summer rave bop with nods to 90s euro dance and acid house stretching itself, hitting every corner of the world from the beaches of Ibiza and Naples to warehouses parties in London and Berlin. ENJOY!”
Mykki Blanco has also announced a run of European festival dates this August and September, as well as a show at Pitchfork Music Festival Berlin this November.
