New Orleans based artist Hirakish is a vanguard visionary and a show-stealing HBA catwalk star. ?All the real legends of rock'n'roll culture are dying off,? he said earlier this year. ?Now it's time for me to take their place.? Recent performances include a live show at MoMA PS1 where Hirakish debuted as a provocateur shamelessly indulging in sex, drugs and rock'n'roll for pure pleasure. Hirakish is currently working on a Project with Yves Tumor.
'Black Velvet' is one's struggle with paradoxes of love, suffering, and desire. Awash with blistering guitars, synths and hard-hitting vocals laced with fragile & reckless lyrics that yield a spiritual and hallucinogenic air. Hirakish along with producers Lil Jodeci & Brandon Ares have created a soulful antidote with a razor-sharp soundscape that reincarnates the soul. Hirakish will premiere a new live performance 'Velvet Cafe' in London this coming fall.
