Fresh from being hand selected to support Ed Sheeran at Chantry Park this summer, Suffolk alt-pop artist Bessie Turner has released her new single Down 2 last Friday, co-written with The Vaccines’ Justin Young.
Down 2 is an amazing track. The unique indie pop melodies are powerful and showcase multiple artistic expressions. Moreover, Bessie’s vocals are sublime, she sings with so much passion. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the dynamic chorus!
On the single, Bessie says: ”Down 2 is a kind of angry love song. It’s about wanting someone to give a shit but also wanting the opposite of that. The conflict of greedy emotions; you’re totally down and miserable when they’re around, but you also want them there because you realise that the problem might be a bit more deep rooted – and maybe you’re just totally fucking miserable when you’re on your own. It’s about internal feelings more than anything, the juxtaposition of knowing your worth but also not having enough self-respect to even make your bed when you get out of it. It’s about the fear of being on your own. It’s about using people for own gain. It’s about distractions. It’s about that whole bodily feeling you get when you think you’ve done something wrong, and you feel like you’re about to be sick.”
Bessie has made incredibly good music, Down 2 is a modern gem. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
