Industrial-tinged and true crime-inspired electronic duo SKYND is the dark creative outlet and the alter ego of its lead singer, Skynd, and producer and multi-instrumentalist Father. They are known for taking inspiration from inexplicable and brutal criminal cases and the mystery surrounding unsolved deaths, and transforming them into songs to remind us of the darkness within the human psyche, while taking great care to avoid any glorification. Small clusters of songs have been released as EPs, titled in numbered chapters.


Today, SKYND continues Chapter V, with the release of new track “Bianca Devins” and its official video. “Bianca Devins” stands out amongst SKYND‘s releases, in part for being named for the victim and not the perpetrator, as in previous tracks. This recent case – from July 14, 2019 – also showed just how gruesome the dark side of social media can be.


Skynd says, “Bianca Devins is a case that shook me to the core, as it shows us once again what power social media can have. How incredibly confusing the rules are. A woman showing her nipples is censored, but a photo of a young, half-beheaded girl named Bianca Devins circulated for weeks on social media platforms. The brutality of Brandon Clark’s inhuman cruelty toward Bianca is still shocking. The warning signs were there. The Instagram stories he posted were all aimed at the same thing: he was jealous, he wanted her for himself, he wanted to kill her, and because she kissed another boy it seemed like revenge. He took Bianca’s life because he couldn’t stand that she wanted to live her life the way she did. He took that away from her. People then posted this horrific photo of her, not even knowing her name. They just shared it, not fully knowing what happened. That’s why it was very important to me to write about her, to put her name out there once again, and put her in the spotlight.”


Highly respected film maker PR Brown, who once again directed the song’s official video adds, “When I first heard the Bianca Devins track I couldn’t help but think of my own daughter. The video is more of a tragic cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming a superhero in the social online world and what that could hold. Skynd wanted to reflect Bianca’s real and imagined world as two opposing sides. In the video, she gives in to the temptation to be bigger than herself as it all becomes a bit too surreal and overwhelming. By the end, the lines are blurred between what is real and what is a dream.”
