London-based singer-songwriter Bianca Bazin has poured her heart and soul into ‘White Water’. The track is about overcoming personal battles and persevering in the face of adversity.
Bazin previously made folk music. She states that “due to the desire to explore new sounds and ideas, I wanted to make music which would be more uplifting”. This shift from folk to pop has clearly been the product of a lot of soul-searching, and ‘White Water’ is a sure example of how Bazin is not afraid to explore her musical capabilities and push the boat out. She digs deep in this track, and wears her heart on her sleeve. For this reason, she comes across as unapologetic in her choices, but the song still displays a sense of vulnerability which makes it all the more cathartic.
The best songs are the ones that come from the heart, which is why ‘White Water’ is one of Bazin’s best yet. Influenced by the likes of Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa and Florence & The Machine, Bazin borrows her sense of security and shamelessness in her art from these fellow strong females. But her velvety vocal is completely her own.
Her emotions are laid bare in ‘White Water’, and its polished production allows Bazin’s pure, soaring vocal to shine brilliantly. At 2 minutes 29 seconds, the cascading instrumentals elevate the song even further. In triumphant upwards ascension, Bazin’s creation stands strong.
A unique, contemporary artist, Bazin shows the power of vulnerability with this exquisite offering, ‘White Water’.
