Blank Paper wins The Deli NYC's Year End Poll ELECTRONIC Open Submissions

When I first heard synth pop quartet Blank Paper, the first thing to cross my mind was: this is a band that knows the value of deep sleep. With tracks like 'Tape Dreams' and 'Wishing Well' off their last EP, this quartet awakens a wide sonic palette, all while sleepwalking through lucid lyrics fitting perfectly with the record sleeve's giant, fold-out unicorns. New song 'Ambien' revels in this state of unconsciousness, when singer Marie Kim pleads repeatedly with you to do whatever you want, just don't wake her up. Perhaps the band's catchiest track to date, the song asks for somnambulance, while synthesizing one of the group's more urgent sounding synth-pop jams yet. Check it out below, and see them plug in their keyboards live when they play at Music Hall of Williamsburg on January 17th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
