Australian singer-songwriter Hugo Basclain has recently released their evocatively intense Pop single “Veins”. By hitting play, you’ll throw yourself headfirst into the refreshing distinction of the uniquely compelling Ballad. With elements of Classic Pop combined with a contemporary Indie feel, it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve heard someone spill their souls through a single. Veins is a soundscape which makes very little apology about getting under your skin.
By far the most striking aspect of the single is the way in which the narrative gradually unfolds against the semi-orchestral piano-led soundscape as the lyrics become increasingly candid with each verse. It’s the perfect track to test whether your soul is still functioning or not.
