It’s evident from previous music videos that the North London dark soul singer/songwriter BASHEBA has a flair for creating engaging and moving visuals.
‘Platinum & Gold’ is no exception as the beautifully shot video (directed by Vasilisa Forbes with art direction from Luke Nugent) is the perfect foil for her haunting vocal delivery and sparse production courtesy of XVR BLK. Previous video ‘Don’t Go’ accumulated over 100K views on YouTube in its first two months and followed other fan favourites ‘High And Dry’ and ‘Dirty Love (Your Love)’.
Known for combining breakbeat and jungle rhythms in previous work, ‘Platinum & Gold’ continues to show a progression in sound for the young Londoner. Her ‘from the heart’ lyrics and dark soulful vocal delivery always stands out in her music, and it’s this which she has been able translate effortlessly to other areas like trip-hop, bass and R&B. It is the lead track taken from her latest EP ‘Axiom Pt. 2’ which is out now on iTunes and Spotify (via her own label Y.O.B Records) and is the second instalment of the ‘Axiom’ EP, released in April 2016.
