preciousken I have been waiting for someone to put raw emotion and sass back into the darkpop genre. This album crackles with mid tempo dance beats to fill the back walls of the club. The lyrics are an inward journey with an 80's Madonna soul. Beautiful modern layered vocals to create movement and build. It's one of those sounds that flows through your earbuds and into your nervous system and flexes attitude through your body.

I sit all in black In a white room In a white chair I sold half my soul For a white bag He don't play fair I look to the throne For a white knight On a white steed Just leave me alone I insist I can beat this I'm chasing sunsets I don’t wanna live in the light I’m chasing sunsets You’ll never get out alive I’m chasing sunsets I don’t wanna live in the light I’m chasing sunsets You’ll never get out alive White (k)night It's so hard out there For a nice boy With a dark dream Take this once a day Try to stay young You know what I mean I look to the throne For a white knight On a white steed Don’t leave me alone I insist We can beat this I'm chasing sunsets I don’t wanna live in the light I’m chasing sunsets You’ll never get out alive I’m chasing sunsets I don’t wanna live in the light I’m chasing sunsets You’ll never get out alive White (k)night I haven’t slept in years and years and years and years I don’t have the tears the tears the tears the tears I haven’t slept in years and years and years and years I don’t have the tears the tears the tears the I haven’t slept in years I don’t have the tears I’m chasing sunsets I’m chasing sunsets White (k)night White (k)night

When I was young I wasn’t your average kind of kid  Apparently I asked too many questions, all I wanted was to fit in. Mama told me I should try to make some friends  But I just couldn’t play with the lambs, or follow the sheep All running to get to the top of the heap  Cus I could see the demons  I used to hear‘em screamin’ Once they’ve got you there is no going back Rejoice and relax You can never go back All my heroes went insane  Looks like I’ll end up the same  There’s no hope for the free in paradise city But It sure looks pretty to me Every day there’s something new that makes me sick Apparently I’m just too realistic and my lack of devotion’s a sin Every day the sky’s a different shade of grey  Waking up in a world that’s only concerned with how will you pay? Not are you okay? I’m still seein' demons  I can feel ‘em breathin’ Once they get ya there is no going back  You can never go back You can never go back All my heroes went insane  Looks like I’ll end up the same  There’s no hope for the free in paradise city But It sure looks pretty to me 
Oh what a world, hallelujah  
All my heroes went insane  Looks like I’ll end up the same  There’s no hope for the free in paradise city But It sure looks pretty to me  All my heroes went insane I’ll end up the same Oh what a world, hallelujah

Bubble 03:34
Why do you worship what you don’t understand? I’ll show you how to hold fire in the palm of your hand We’ll redefine what you think it means to die Let’s make trouble, pop that bubble, and bring you to the light Kill the queen and take her throne We can rearrange your skin and bones Let’s get weird, you can wear my crown Turn this fucked up world even more upside down You keep on pickin’ that, pickin’ that, pickin’ that scab I’m gonna take, take, take you down You keep on pickin’ that, pickin’ that, pickin’ that scab I’m gonna take, take, take you down I wanna pop that bubble Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven Can you surrender and let me take control? Fill you up with so much midnight that I’ll black out your soul We speak in tongues to give weight to the lies Let’s make trouble, pop that bubble, and bring you to the light Kill the queen and take her throne We can rearrange your skin and bones Let’s get weird, you can wear my crown Turn this fucked up world even more upside down You keep on pickin’ that, pickin’ that, pickin’ that scab I wanna pop that bubble Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven You seek perfection With no direction Come join the party And choose your weapon You seek perfection, darlin’ But lack direction So, join the party And choose your weapon Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven Good boys don’t go to heaven Good girls don’t go to heaven Good boys don’t go to heaven I wanna pop that bubble Good girls don’t go to heaven I wanna pop that bubble Good boys don’t go to heaven I wanna pop that bubble Good girls don’t go to heaven I wanna pop that bubble

Love Me Bad 04:05
Bite my lip Throw me on the floor  Grab me by the neck  Treat me like a whore  I’ve got a proposition Put me in new positions Look in my eyes we’re going  Down, down, down, down  You’re such a cute disaster  Know you won’t call me after  Hold my head under let me  Drown, drown, drown, drown You should know you’re just my type, baby  I like ‘em dirty with a hint of crazy  Fuck me up, don’t treat me right, baby  I want you to love me bad I want you to love me bad  Bite my lip Throw me on the floor  We’ll keep it undercover Don’t wanna meet your mother  Let’s have a play date under- ground, ground, ground, ground Tomorrow doesn’t matter  I kinda like the pattern Can’t catch your breath, I like the  Sound, sound, sound, sound 
You should know you’re just my type, baby  I like em dirty with a hint of crazy  Fuck me up, don’t treat me right, baby  I want you to love me bad I want you to love me bad  Pull my hair I’ll pull your trigger  You play god I’ll be your sinner I am what you want  At least right now I’m what you want  This is a cage match  Shark attack  Show me how you wanna act  Lick my bones  Turn me to stone You look pretty on your back  You should know you’re just my type, baby  I like em dirty with a hint of crazy  Make me come over tonight, baby  I want you to love me bad I want you to love me bad

Burn 03:36
Drowning in your kindness And your silence Is a violent thing I’ll finish what you started Cause your heart is Making me extinct You’re in my head I’m painted red I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you fade away and let me breathe again I wanna see you burn Burn Living is a contest And forgiveness Is too good for me Everyday‘s a war zone Fighting with the unknown As you crawl through me You’re in my head I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you fade away and let me breathe again I wanna see you burn Burn The best of you Is the worst of me I’ll rise from your ashes A bird set free The best of you Is the worst of me I’ll rise from your ashes And take my wings I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you fade away and let me breathe again I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you burn Burn I wanna see you fade away and let me breathe again I wanna see you burn Burn

Sanctuary 04:03
I thought that happy was a lie To keep us in our place in line You kissed my lips and lit a fire Shocked my heart and brought me back to life Oh, I think about your body all the fuckin’ time Can’t seem to get you out of my twisted mind Oh, you’re the only drug that seems to get me high Give me a hit and let’s take a ride I will follow you ‘til the stars fall to the sea I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary Sanctuary I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary Be weird with me, and play the game Like hand grenades to cheap champagne I don’t need money, cars or fame Just hold my hand and say my name Oh, I think about your body all the fuckin’ time Can’t seem to get you out of my twisted mind Oh, you’re the only drug that seems to get me high Give me a hit and let’s take a ride I will follow you ‘til the stars fall to the sea I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary Sanctuary I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary I will follow you ‘til the stars fall to the sea I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary I will follow you ‘til the stars fall to the sea I’m not holy but I promise to be your sanctuary

about

“Crackling energy and neck grabbing hooks from NYC. Personal soul threaded into club kid sleek trance. This record is everything cool I want to give off. The smoky saxophone trills add a beautiful contrast note. The cadence the lyrics are delivered with are an extra percussion and rhythm. It leaves me longing for more.” - Sounds & Shadows: Top Dark Pop / Postpunk / Synthwave Albums of 2020

”shiny, lascivious hard candy, Blu’s tunes contain the sugary sweetness of pop with the tooth-mashing, always-a-choking-risk of industrial and metal; it’s a candy first and foremost, but it’s not without some bite. The darkwave, electropop cornucopia of the EP is precisely channelled in the single White (K)night.” - V13 / Stereo Six

“dark enough to appeal to alternative music fans, while being accessible enough to be enjoyed by the general public. That’s not selling out, it’s frankly genius, and The Pale Horse rides off into the sunset triumphantly.” - Crypt Teaze

"Blu wards off anxiety by projecting his voice of positivity and change in his infectious track, White (K)night.” - Alternative Press

"[Burn]--a haunting, ’90s-indebted dark-pop ballad that’s heavy on the doom." - NewNowNext
