What's This?

The Toronto music scene has been dreadfully quiet as of late. While some of the city’s bigger names have achieved supertsar status (i.e. Drake and The Weeknd), there hasn’t been much in the way of new, exciting talent. At least, that’s until BLAJK arrived. A product of their generation, the band create a very thoughtful blend of electronic-pop and alt-rock that calls to mind The Neighbourhood and The 1975. On their debut single “Hamptons,” lead singer Jordan Radics tackles the topic of heartbreak in a dark, yet optimistic sort of way. As synths plink in the background, he skips over beat with ease, cruising through the chorus while working overtime on the verse. The end result is a sleek and refreshing tune that feels both unique and familiar.
