Blanks is a singer-songwriter and musician from the Netherlands. Not too long ago, he released a cool audiovisual for his “Silly People” single.

“I see a lot of people around me, in online and offline life, who can’t stop talking about searching for meaning. The funny thing is, though, these people seem to search in all the wrong places. They fill the void with meaningless experiences, something I recognize in myself too. We want immediate gratification, without having to work or wait for it. In the midst of living, we seem to forget how to actually enjoy it.” – Blanks stated

It’s time to press the reset button. With all the chaos going on in the world, it’s safe to say that normal life and routine are changed a tad bit for the foreseeable future. Therefore, now is the perfect time to reevaluate the ways in which we live our lives and how we search for meaning.

Blanks is an artist who is using his platform to advocate for exactly this. His “Silly People” single is a call for a reform in the way we live. He suggests that we should live in the moment and appreciate the small things in life while practicing simplicity.

“By confronting ourselves with questions, dreams, and ambitions, we grow. We learn about ourselves. We learn what we like and what we don’t like. What we dream of. And this way, we’ll learn where to look for meaning.” – Blanks stated

With all shows rescheduled to later this year, Blanks had plenty of time to think and reflect on the way that we live our lives in today’s fast-paced culture—and “Silly People” is the result.

The themes are reflective of the bizarre way the world is turning, giving us the opportunity to properly understand and reevaluate how we live today. The song itself is buoyant and light-hearted, the perfect antidote to all the doom and gloom in the news headlines and the world as a whole. Blanks’s music is not just entertainment at this point, it’s advice and guidance for the way we think about living and interacting with each other.

‘Silly People’ contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable indie-pop tune possesses vibrant instrumentation decorated with basslines and drum beats taken straight from the ‘80s (Blanks’s favorite era and where he finds his signature sound). Furthermore, the track makes use of whistling solos and an exhilarating chorus which demands that everyone get up and dance.
