Bastie, a Herefordshire based indie pop singer-songwriter, is to release ‘Lullaby Highs’, dropping March 12th.
I listen to a wide variety of music, genres and artists working for Musik Magazine, but I may be brave enough to say that “Lullaby Highs” is my favourite so far!
The track is relatable without being patronising, it almost sounds like a train of thought in some parts, the rhymes coming easily.
Bastie’s voice and singing style reminds me of early Passenger, saying it how it is and allowing acoustic guitars (which I hold in an extremely high regard) their moments to shine in the right place.
Bastie is a former ‘BBC Introducing Artist of the Week’ who has already received extensive airplay from BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio.
Even BBC presenter Andrew Marston commented on Bastie’s sound – “Infectious melodies and emotive lyrics from an artist at the beginning of an illustrious career”.
