BIM releases video for her vulnerable yet empowering retro-soul inspired single ‘I Still Remember'
Off the back of the success of her previous single ‘O.T.R.’ London-based singer-songwriter with gospel roots, BIM returns with her new ethereal, soulful single, ‘I Still Remember’, produced by LGK, taken from her upcoming EP.
‘I Still Remember’ is a soulful take on the emotional whirlwind that depicts the collective experience of being black in Britain.
Opening with BIM’s familiar bass lines, the single navigates through an intricate flawless refined soundscape of slow, textured beats and elegant melodies, allowing for her celestial harmonies to cushion her every word.
Speaking about the single, BIM explains “It was written in the summer of 2020 when it seemed that so many, for the first time, we’re seeing the reality of our daily lives for what can be. There seemed to be an awakening taking place but this song articulates my frustration with the idea that this is a ‘new’ occurrence. It’s not. Calling out what has been wrong for so long is very overdue and this is my way of asking where were you? and why did you take so long?”
Equipped with a soaring mezzo soprano which has tone and texture in abundance, deft songwriting and a clear point of view, BIM has provided distinctive vocals for many of the world’s top artists including; Stormzy, Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa, Bastille, & Elton John. She also coordinated the choir for The Royal Wedding.
Her musicianship continues to position her onto the journey of success. And with each release her trajectory elevates further. Continually garnering key support from the likes of Ones to Watch, Wordplay magazine, Reprezent radio, Kiss FM, Kiss Fresh, BBC radio Wales, among others.
BIM’s discography so far further proves the range of her songwriting prowess, reminding us that she is a true gem to keep your eye on as one of the most exhilarating newcomers on the scene.
