If you didn’t already pick up on it, pnkblnkt has a mind of his own. His latest release, “Silience,” dives further into his deep channels of thoughts as he asks listeners, “Is there room for another artist trying to be heard?” There’s a menacing ring to it as the layers of production build on top of each other and the beat creeps its way down your ear canal.
With the amount of attention devoted to covering celebrities and artists in the news, pnkblnkt suggests that we are constantly stimulated by our surroundings. “To me, the song sounds like claustrophobia and anxiety, which led to the rollout concept of ‘Is there room for one more?’” he says. The artwork by Victor Caballero visually represents this idea as one square stands alone beside a golden Rubik’s Cube.
“Silience” derives from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, which is defined as the following:
The kind of unnoticed excellence that carries on around you every day, unremarkably—the hidden talents of friends and coworkers, the slapdash eloquence of anonymous users, the unseen portfolios of aspiring artists—which would be renowned as masterpieces if only they’d been appraised by the cartel of popular taste, who assume that brilliance is a rare and precious quality, accidentally overlooking buried jewels that may not be flawless but are still somehow perfect.To further articulate this point, pnkblnkt launched a new website designed by Brady Sheridan. This visual is intended to reflect the same emotions that pnkblnkt conveys through the song by making the viewer feel an overwhelming sense of information overload.
