BLACKSTARKIDS Release New Single “ACTING NORMAL” – Album Out Thursday

BLACKSTARKIDS – Ty, Deoindre and The Babe Gabe – have released “ACTING NORMAL” – the latest single from their new album Whatever, Man out this ThursdayOctober 22 via Dirty Hit. Riding a wave of lackadaisical rap positioned over videogame-like synths and slacker drum patterns, the new single uses a rapid-fire style canter to romanticize aspirations of living a rockstar life and escaping the suffocating walls of a classroom or nine to five job – a nod back to their post-high school days in Kansas City, pretending to be considering their career options or future education, when deep down they knew they only wanted to make music. CLICK HERE to listen to “ACTING NORMAL.”

Whatever, Man walks through a winding maze of surprise and discovery, embracing BLACKSTARKIDS‘ own nostalgia for their upbringing in the 2000s and takes us deeper down the Kansas City outfit’s pop culture path – which saw their debut album, Let’s Play Sports embrace ’80s pastiche, while its follow up, SURF, leaned on ’90s grunge.
