Mimi Barks releases new track and music video for “Grind”

London trap metal artist Mimi Barks releases her brand new single and video for “Grind”.

Mimi Barks states about the new track.

“Can’t nurture a seed without water and warmth. Can’t fix someone when you’re broken inside. Push down to feel superior. Watching the spark ignite the fire and turn to ash and it’s too late to realize that you can’t love anybody when you despise yourself.” 

If Trap Metal came screaming out of the digital womb, a sonic playar 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.
