Following the lush, enveloping sound of previous single ‘Bridges’, New York’s Aisha Badru returns to charm our ears with a sparkling new offering, ‘Splintered’.
A call for people to take control of their lives, ‘Splintered’ flows with the beautiful, sweeping splendour of Badru’s delicately emotion-strewn vocals. Oozing a majestic grace, alongside twinkling melodies and a soaring musicality, it’s filled with a raw emotion that’ll send shivers down the spine on first listen. With shades of the twinkling fragility of Daughter, it’s another simply spellbinding creation from this innovative artist.
Of the track, Badru explains:
“We often find someone else to blame. We are afraid to take responsibility, reclaim our power, and heal ourselves. Splintered encourages people to face the dark spots within us in order to find the light.”
Pendulum, the latest album from Aisha Badru, is out now. Catch her live at her first UK appearance on 18th September at Oslo, Hackney.
