Annie Bass channels powerful self-worth in ‘Don’t Want’
Sydney singer-songwriter, ANNIE BASS returns to us with her beautifully balanced new single, ‘Don’t Want’; with the help of Melbourne buddies Christopher Port on production duties, then mastered by Andrei Eremin.
A gentle hum softly whistles to connect the space, cushioning the fall of Bass‘ felt dialogue. The voice representing a tiresome affair of love and disappointment, the artist’s demeanour encapsulates the thematic energy of ‘Don’t Want’ early on in the piece.
Contrasting the softened skin of the solemn production against the gasps of a harsh body of collated, choppy beats, ‘Don’t Want’ is suddenly breathed life through its chosen colours, and becomes quite a relative ordeal. It is through these two harmonic tones that the song balances two powerfully emotive syndicates – one representing the lone heartbreak with apathy, and the other digesting irrational frustration; what with the filtered vocal elements that accumulate with said beats.
Growing dense in the progression of the track with every new element swiftly unfolding, Annie Bass‘ ‘Don’t Want’ is a journey of realisation and courage, and is sure to resonate with any listener confronting the challenge of worth.
