Blackhaine’s resolve is tested on ‘Prayer’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Ahead of Armour II which lands next month, Blackhaine links with Iceboy Violet and Blood Orange for a hushed cry from the sidelines.

Blackhaine and Rainy Miller have formed one of the most potent relationships in UK music. 2020’s Armour teased their experimental, ‘ambient drill’ sound, which has gone from strength to strength since through a number of releases on the Fixed Abode label.

Now, they’ve teamed up again ahead of Armour II(Which is set for release June 10) for ‘Prayer’, which also features Iceboy Violet and Blood Orange. Humanising synthetic sounds with vulnerable confessions, Blackhaine’s second single from his forthcoming record subverts the boundaries of drill and electronica. The video sees Blackhaine seek reassurance from higher powers, with Iceboy Violet and Rainy Miller also featuring throughout.

Elsewhere, Blackhaine has featured on Space Afrika’s critically acclaimed Honest Labour and provided choreography on Kanye West’s Donda 1 & 2 events.
