Isha Walia and Travis Brothers collaborated on a cryptic visual to showcase the adrenaline rush of escape with a flashlight in hand. “Blood on My Hands” is an escapist anthem blending reverberating synthesizers with August’s raspy yet tender vocals. He’s haunted by wistful affection and guilt singing: “Should’ve never been so quick to give my love away / I’m involved with two girls I can’t / I’ve got this blood on my hands”. Smino utilizes an invigorated delivery to tackle temptation head-on.

“Blood On My Hands” serves as a temporary escape from life’s woes submerged in a smoky, strobe-lit trance.
