Video: Blessed (@ThisIsBlessed) - Howlin
Hailing from south-east London, BLESSED is the exciting new London duo currently causing a storm on the music scene as they continue to unleash their addictive and one-of-a-kind fusion of R&B, dancehall, electronic, & pop-influenced sounds.
Made-up of sisters Lauren & Georgia Morgan, BLESSED have just released their brand new track, "Howlin". Once again demonstrating their flair for crafting hypnotic sonics with killer melodies & sharp lyricism, the dance floor-ready celebration of irresistible animal attraction is further brought to life with the striking must-see visual, directed by rising UK director Mo Swlaeh and featuring a group of the band's friends who they invited down to appear as extras. The track follows the recent release of BLESSED's debut EP, 'See Through All The Colours', which along with its seductive title track also featured their previous release "My Yute" & debut track "Venom".
Recently signed to the iconic Island Records hot on the heels of the buzz they have been bringing to the scene, BLESSED have steadily been building some serious heat and earning rave reviews from titles such as i-D & Wonderland and had Popjustice urging everyone to "keep your eyes on this pair" whilst SBTV described the duo as "definitely blessed".
Speaking on their new track, BLESSED told Clash magazine:
"'Howlin' is that craving feeling you have for a person you really like or love, especially when you're away from them and these feelings become more intense.
As much as 'Howlin' is about lusting for a significant other, we still wanted there to be an element of friendship and female solidarity, with women looking out for one another.
We love how the visuals show us on our separate paths but eventually joining together to meet our closest girls in the party scene to really bring it all together. We had so much fun shooting it and love that we're able to look back on a project that our friends are a part of."
Earlier this year, the duo released their debut track, the soulful & haunting "Venom" which swiftly caught the attention of major UK outlets and along with their show-stopping covers of tracks by the likes of Cashmere Cat, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, & DJ Khaled offered a glimpse of the credentials which will no doubt see BLESSED as the new act to watch out for and the name on everyone's lips!!!
