Alternative pop trio Bahari have released their new single “Fucked Up” as the start to much-anticipated new music coming in 2018, topping a catalogue that already includes their hit singles “Wild Ones”, “Dancing on the Sun”, and “I Miss You”, as well as collaborative tracks with Zedd and Grey. The band, composed of vocalist/bassist Natalia Panzarella, vocalist/keyboardist Ruby Carr, and vocalist/guitarist Sidney Sartini, have continued to build a major following since hitting the scene only a few years ago, through touring with Selena Gomez and Birdy, and recently scoring a sync with “Get Together” in CW’s hit show Riverdale. On the verge of their next move, Bahari spent the last few months of 2017 in the studio getting centered with themselves and their sound. Listen here
They were re-evaluating and recalculating, developing new material that reflected their growth personally and creatively. Fans may have noticed a slight change in the band’s website, which has been appropriately labeled “Fucked Up” as of late, with a return promised for 2018. Now, their single titled “Fucked Up” is available as a heavy statement towards love and moving forward. Diehards will be pleased to hear familiar voices in the track, and will also discover a blooming sound that is evident of Bahari’s evolution as artists.
When crafting “Fucked Up”, the girls approached the song with a visual aesthetic in mind. “We used a lot of blues and purple in this one. For us, we see writing music like painting or drawing a picture. When we wrote this song, we were trying to capture that exact moment when you realize you are falling in love. Even if you’re afraid. Even if you don’t want to, you are falling for them and you can’t control your heart. ‘You thought you were immune to it, but now I’ve got you all fucked up.’ “
