Russian born vocalist Anastasia Baast (real name Anastasia Bykova), has been singing from an early age and graduated from Villuan Music School, then moving on to study under Yana Tioulkova at her Jazz Vocal Studio. Having participated and won in several vocal competitions around Europe and the USA such as OPUS (Spain), Berliner Perle (Germany), and Star Chance (USA), she attended the world-renown Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, graduating with a Bachelors in Performing Arts. Now based in NYC, Anastasia regularly performs in the city and surrounding Tri-state area as a member of several outfits and as a featured artist.
She recently released her debut single Evaporate and it is a wonderful piece of music. I like the uplifting melodies. Besides, the vocals are outstanding. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the powerful chorus!
Lyrically, the song is very impressive. It’s about Baast’s past fight with eating disorders and the confusion, fear, and difficulties that this brought into her life.
The single is accompanied by a beautiful music video, directed by Frankie Turiano. The clip features the struggles described in the lyrics, highlighting concepts such as the personal struggles, pain, and secrets. The emotions and energy of the track are excellently embodied by Hanna Fomenko in her role as the pole dancer, while Baast takes front and center, conveying her lyrics with passion and grace.
Evaporate is a track that needs a lot of attention. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
