bladebae – “Worst of Sins”


A gripping new track from bladebae, “Worst of Sins” evolves from haunting folk to a rousing rock spectrum. Aesthetically, Jeff Buckley is an enjoyable point of comparison. Per the artist, the track “explores the quandaries of sabotaging your own happiness- and perversely enjoying it.” Initial croons and accompanying acoustics concoct a lonesome, yearning feeling. Soulful backing vocal emergence takes prominence thereafter, especially in the stirring second half. The track’s “worst of sins,” closing refrain elicits chills, bringing the track to a satisfying close. “Worst of Sins” is a fully captivating showing of songwriting from bladebae.

“Worst of Sins” comes via bladebae´s upcoming hashtagblessed EP.
