London based Trap Metal artist MIMI BARKS has released a new single/video ‘Grind’, the 6th single of the upcoming album DEADGIRL.
MIMI BARKS comments:
“Can’t nurture a seed without water and warmth, can’t fix someone when you’re broken inside, push down to feel superior, watched the spark ignite the fire and turn to ash, and it’s too late to realise that you can’t love anybody when you despise yourself”
If Trap Metal came screaming out of the digital womb, a sonic playa hater wired to disrupt the code of those who came before, then the likes of MIMI BARKS are the future of the glitchy genre. Her “from-the-heart-guts-n-soul” smash of trap beats and raspy, pissed-off vocals has been self-christened: “DOOM TRAP” and the name fits. It’s the bitter pill the former Berliner-now-relocated-to-London intends to smear all over the genre in a way that’s punk-as-fuck and louder-than-hell. This is the sound of music eating its young. Imagine Hip Hop word fire, electronic beats and slashing guitars chewed up and spat out by Trap’s chopped beats, distorted basslines and general weirdness.
