august 08 smino

Last year, AUGUST 08 blew us away with his FATHER EP. Today, the California-bred artist is bouncing back into the spotlight with his new single “Blood on My Hands” featuring Smino. The accompanying visual is co-directed by Isha Walia and Travis Brothers and appears to simulate some sort of nighttime car crash from in the woods.

AUGUST 08 recently collaborated with Wynne on the moody track “Spiral” which dropped at the top of December. FATHER is out now on 88rising/Red Bull Records. Stream the new single in the video above. For more from the 88rising crew, revisit our interview with Joji, Rich Brian, and AUGUST 08 here and check out our Ones To Watch profile on Lexie Liu.
