Veronica Bianqui’s new single is tagged as “garage pop soul” and I couldn’t agree more. Complemented by kaleidoscopic artwork, it’s a psychedelic swirl of cross-genre influences that siphons the raw edge of garage rock, the infectiousness of pop, and the intrinsic dramatics of soul. There’s so much here to digest; I particularly love the simplicity of the snappy beat and grungy bass-line, but I also love the horns break and reverberating guitars after the chorus. It’s impossible to choose a favorite element, especially when the track seems to reveal a new touch with every listen.
Living in Los Angeles is a blessing because an artist like Bianqui with limitless potential lives a few neighborhoods away. It’s so inspiring to be in a city where creators whose impact has the potential to be felt nationally and globally walk among us. When you cut through all the traffic, through all the noise, through all the excess, there’s burgeoning visionaries developing their craft. We have the privilege of discovering them and watching them every step of the way – I’ll try to not take that for granted today.
