Following January’s well-received debut single Thinking About You, Newcastle singer-songwriter Bourn is back today with her euphoric new song Scenarios. The new track explores jealousy in relationships and showcases the young songwriter’s slick command of pulsating, 80s influenced electropop alongside relatable lyrics and sweet vocals. Listen here
Bourn developed her early material while living on the Orkney Isles and is now based in the thriving North East music scene. Parallels have been drawn with Taylor Swift for her personal, relatable lyrics, and with Kate Bush and Dolores O’Riordan for her ethereal vocals. After a stint spent honing her stagecraft supporting X-Factor winner Matt Cardle on tour, she began recording early material in London. This vital learning period gave her the tools to eventually become a fully independent and confident artist capable of telling her story on her terms.
More recently, Bourn’s musical identity has radically evolved as she began producing her own music, embracing the challenges of a bedroom artist with consummate ease. She began to draw more and more from the styles and sounds of the late ‘80s and combined this with her intimate writing style. Along with an astute awareness of her contemporary influences, the potential for a revolution in 21st century pop could be just around the corner.
