London based Bassette releases her new debut single BOYS WITH GUITARS featuring American rapper IshDARR
Bassette releases her powerful new single ‘Boys With Guitars’, which features a guest verse from American rap artist IshDARR. The track is a real testament to the striking voice of Bassette and is a well received follow up from her feature with Joe Hertz on ‘Playing For You’ last year.
‘BWG’ is R&B at its most omnipotent. Premiered today via i-D Magazine.
“Her debut single is a determined statement” – i-D.
Picture a darkened room, punctuated with the soft ambiance of mood lightening. There are candles and the lingering fumes of an incense stick as the feeling of deep interaction hovers on the horizon. This is the world of Bassette and her powerful new single ‘BWG’.
Born in Bermuda, the twenty-two-year-old has built a career on a compelling bedrock of twists and turns. In her early years Bassette’s family relocated to Scotland, a world away from the big, colorful houses of Bermuda and the generations of her family who continue to live on the Caribbean island. It’s here – among the frozen moorlands and mountainous terrain of the UK’s northernmost country – that she first shared her voice.
“I kind of knew I could sing,” she says modestly, recounting how a friend recorded her singing using a karaoke program, then subsequently showed that recording to everyone”.
Like every R&B artist worth their salt, Bassette’s voice has been destined to hit notes in the hearts of those who hear it, even from a young age.
