Exploring and creating her soundscapes since 1999, Beady Belle releases her latest single, Truth Wide Open.
The Norwegian artist has released several albums such as Dedication, At Welding Bridge and Belvedere filled with non-linear arrangements underlined with a distinguished sound of soul.
Truth Wide Open fascinates with waves of organic neo-soul, produced, programmed, and sung by Beady Belle herself. Keyboards and additional programming are courtesy of Bjarne Gustavsen. Beady Belles’ vocals have always been arrestingly smooth, and here she exceeds with emotional honesty and haunting nordic soul vibrations. In an age of misinformation and untruths, her sombre tone mirrors her pleading call for authenticity.
«This is no striptease to entertain
It’s just naked
This is unvarnished and plain
Can you take it?
Or will you walk away?»
The single personifies Scandinavian soul music.
This refined neo-soul, blended with electronic elements, synths and samples undulating with a freedom of expression, signifies the heart of the genre we call – Scandinavian Soul.
The truth here is wide open. And this is easily one of the best singles of the year!
***Updated with the official video. How did she sing this backwards?!! ****
