I do love when you’re thinking “when is such and such going to put out some new music?, and hey presto said artist drops a new song to let you get a taste of what they’ve been working on. Singer/songwriter/producer Sudie dropped back on our radar with the brooding ‘Bruise.” The song is raw and emotional, expressing the stresses we go through in life and the depth of her lyrics are what elevate the track to a higher level. “I’m faced with my mortality, Fading into reality, A bruise upon my sanity, Take away, Your vanity,” confesses Sudie.
“When I go deep down the rabbit role thinking about some of the horrors of the world, it kind of drives me insane,” says Sudie. “I start to think, ‘well what’s the point,’ and other scary down the rabbit hole things you would think when you kind of step out of your reality and into the entrails of your brain’s deepest darkest corners.”
The self-produced track is wonderfully crafted and her gorgeous vocals are backed by icy soundscapes, consisting of dark electronics with harp arpeggios that give the track a minimal yet captivating feel.
Sudie is quickly establishing a unique lane in the musical landscape and is introducing her own tone to pop music.
