Bertie Blackman is nothing like your run-of-the-mill pop star. The Australian crooner brings pop with her own distinct point view and an inspired delivery that is both raw, bare knuckled and brutally honest.
Check out two totally guilt-free remixes of Bertie Blackman's new single, "Thump."
For Bertie, "Thump" song captures that "feeling of walking home late at night; your footsteps hit the pavement and your whole body pulsates. You become really aware of your breath and heartbeat", haunting vocals soar, industrial electronics collide and the track troughs into eerie breaths of quiet throughout."
The song is taken from Blackman;s new LP, titled "Secret and Lies," which she produced in collaboration with Sydney based, British producer Lee Groves (Goldfrapp, Gwen Stefani) and
Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Architecture in Helsinki). "Thump" was mixed by
Dave Bascombe (Tears For Fears, Royksopp).
Constantly evolving as an artist, this new record (her tenth studio album to date) presents a new sound for Blackman that is "dark, but also pop." Call it a modern exploration of pop music."I wanted to do something more electronic and less band-oriented" says Blackman in a press release.
