Any fans of Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten are definitely going to want to check out the melancholic masterpiece which is BERG’s single “What If”.
With Faris Badwan (Horrors) in charge of the production, he’s instilled the same cutting atmospherics as you’d find in any of his own tracks. But the London-based singer-songwriter has undoubtedly made her own arrestive mark on the airwaves with What If.
What If is much more than an ambiently restorative hit that you can slip into. It may feed you catharsis, but the striking pensive textures which linger in between the reverb won’t fail to resonate.
My soul may now feel significantly heavier, but BERG’s downtempo synth-infused single succeeded where so many up and coming artists fail. The intensity of the soundscape is enveloping, whilst the majority just scratch at the surface.
What If is the latest ethereal teaser from BERG’s upcoming debut album “Fake Love”, we’ve already joined in the hype around the release, and you undoubtedly will too after you’ve sampled the first single.
