Alt-pop Duo Bahari are taking over pop music with new EP “Forget you” featuring 5 tracks including “Jackie Kennedy”, “Savage” and more
Their single “Hurt” hinges on their haunting and hypnotic vocal interplay as guitar curls around glitchy production. Raw emotion seeps through each hook. Meanwhile, the title track “Forget You” fuses icy synths to a head-nodding bass line. It climaxes on the entrancing and ethereal chorus, “Even though I try my best to, I can’t forget you.”
Bahari shares, “We wanted to make a body of music that we felt was our truest selves. The writing process was incredibly honest. We wanted to open up about things we have gone through. The past year, we have spent so much time reflecting and writing from our hearts; these songs really embody that. Though these songs have different meanings, whether about a heartbreak, loss of a loved one or dealing with mental health, the vulnerability of each song is really what brings the Forget You EP together as a collection.”
The new visual features a storyline that depict manic mood swings between its pair of on-screen couples, dramatized with an evocative overlay of effects and graphics generated entirely in AI by Seyhan Lee and AI artist Lulu XXX. The auction takes place today, July 9, at 12p PST on MakersPlace, with 20% of the net proceeds to be donated to Project Healthy Minds. This marks one of the first integrated music and visual NFT offerings designed to benefit mental health.
The livestreamed event is currently available to view on demand HERE. In addition, today at 9a PST, MakersPlacewill host a discussion with Bahari on Twitter Spaces where they will chat with the tech and creative teams behind their charitable initiative.
