Ashnikko – WEEDKILLER
US rapper Ashnikko is a bit like Grimes if Grimes did hip-hop and made cyber drill music. The two share similar aesthetic points of view, rooted in the sort of futuristic high fantasy of video games like Skyrim and Final Fantasy. In the music video for her latest single and the title track off her forthcoming debut album, WEEDKILLER, Ashnikko plays the role of an erratic post-apocalyptic fighter akin to Arcane’s blue haired Jinx, as she goes to battle with a ferocious looking cyborg creature. The song itself isn’t as impressive as the visual story Ashnikko opts for here, but at least its hi-hat heavy post-industrial trap adds enough tension to keep the video compelling. Check it out below.
