Amanda Blank

Amanda Blank can make a man quiver in his dirty boots. She is in the new school of strong, outspoken female performers. With fearless sexuality, club-ready beats, and overall sheen and gloss, Blank is a pop music doll, rapping and singing in pure radio-ready raunch. Take the song “Might Like You Better,” from her debut album I Love You, where Blank samples the Romeo Void lyrics “I might like you better if we slept together.” She sells it. You buy it. I Love You was produced by renowned DJ and producer Diplo and TV on the Radio mastermind Dave Sitek. The album also features appearances by heavy hitters like Spank Rock, Santogold, and Lykke Li. She’s also been featured on songs by Ghostface Killah and Britney Spears. Her songs have been heard on television shows like Entourage and CSI. Amanda Blank will be at the Communist Party this Friday (April 23) at the Tralf. The show starts at 11pm with special guests Steve Kream and more to be announced. It’s going to be a dirty, sweaty, sexy, late show.
