Here to save the world from neutered politically correct indie rock and boring so-called “alternative,” Brooklyn/South Florida duo THE BLANCOS are on a mission to offend and inspire with their new single “Know My Name.”
It’s out now via LAVA/Republic Records. Get it HERE.
The guys — Cory Hueston and Jayson Robbins—teamed up with Complex to debut a raucous and rowdy music video for the tune. When speaking about the record, THE BLANCOS state, “It’s all about self-belief. Speaking things into existence, despite the odds being against you.“
You’ve got to hear it to believe it, but THE BLANCOS spread a gospel of sex, drugs, and 808s powered by woozy guitars, drug-fueled harmonies, and a healthy dose of sexy swagger.
It’s just the first hit though. They’re preparing their major label debut EP for release very new soon. Get ready!
If they’re not your favorite band after “Know My Name,” you have another thing coming…
As the story goes, THE BLANCOS got their name from a homie of theirs during the months spent recording at a Brownsville studio in Brooklyn. They rolled up as literally, “The Blancos,” but could hang nonetheless. Since then, they’ve ingested way too many drugs, wrote not enough songs, and slept on just the right amount of floors to earn Rockstar stripes. That spirit caught LAVA Records founder Jason Flom off guard, and he immediately signed the band during late 2017. They had a caveat though. “They had to let us be ourselves,” adds Jayson.“Know My Name” is proof. Now, you’re going to know THE BLANCOS name when their major label debut EP drops. If you love it, come join the cult. If it offends you…well, you know what to do.
