Psychedelic sound serves to set up new artist 5tink with major success
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – One of the hottest singles of the summer has come from Minneapolis-based artist 5tink, and as more fans are checking it out, it’s beginning to make waves around the globe.
The song is called “Fall” and it’s the perfect showcase for this up-and-coming young artist. Its mixture of electronic beats that drip like drops of sound undeath a rapid high-hat rhythm pair perfectly with 5tink’s distressed vocals that have an electronic R&B vibe, all to come together to form a mash-up of psychedelic R&B and Rock undergirded with electronic overtones.
“It’s definitely a psychedelic kind of experience,” 5stink said. “It’s the kind of sound that gets your attention when something is going on in your life and your mind is kind of busy. It invites you to stop what you’re doing and vibe with me for a little bit.”
The song explores the ups and downs of a relationship, with inspiration pulled from his own current relationship with his girlfriend. The lyrics are ones that he said almost anyone can relate to and he knows that through sharing what he’s experiencing in his own life, he’ll be able to connect with many others around the world.
“I just want to be known for making expressing yourself OK especially for guys,” 5tink said. “I grew up in the world of athletics which was dominated by stifling emotions and being ‘a man’ about stuff. Coming out of that for me with music has helped me to be less stressful and just express everything. That’s what I hope my music does for others as well – and of course that it sounds really good.”
5tink’s career as a budding athlete was cut short when he had a major ankle injury while playing hockey. With his dreams dashed, he entered a depressed state and turned to drugs and alcohol. But during that dark time, he turned to music and poetry as a means of coping. He eventually made the decision to pursue that artistry and knew that music could be the thing that gave him the opportunity to be part of something bigger than himself. In late 2019, his girlfriend gave him the nickname “stink” and everything seemed to kind of click into place from that point forward. He launched his music career at the beginning of 2020 and all of his music that has been released to date can be found across all streaming platforms.
