If there’s a contemporary artist with vibes infectious enough to bring Country into the Pop scene, it’s without doubt London based Urban Country singer songwriter Binky. Whilst it may seem like an unusual approach to sound, I still haven’t got over how well her soulfully unique and captivating vocals resonated over her up-vibe, instrumentally rhythmic new single Jackie D. I can honestly say I’ve never heard so many immersive hooks in a Country track.
If you could imagine a cross over between Kate Nash & Dolly Parton, you’d get an idea of Binky’s vibrantly bewitching sound. Using her inspiration from artists such as Carrie Underwood, Stevie Nicks and Gretchen Wilson she creates a pioneering amalgamation of sounds inspired by a variation of moods and genres. The passion behind Binky’s latest single is tangible, her lyrics are pensively crafted to reflect a period of her own life, isn’t raw, brutal honesty just the sweetest sound?
You can check out the official video to Jackie D on YouTube, you’ll probably be hearing it blasted on Radio 2 soon enough anyway.
