The growing underground scene of abrasive Electronic Pop would not be the same without the inclusion of producer, artist, and songwriter – blackwinterwells. Through her melancholic lyrics, blackwinterwells seems to treat each track as her therapist as she recounts her struggles with depression and maintaining relationships. Her recent single “STRENGTH BONUS” is one of her most inventive, emotive, and moving singles to date.
blackwinterwells teams up with frequent collaborator p4rkr or osquinn who delivers a similarly dejected verse. The two artists also work with underground veteran and production legend, fish narc, who contributes with glitchy and loud electronic instrumentation. p4rkr and blackwinterwells work together so seamlessly that it’s clear they both share a singular vision for their music. They also sample the melody of their previous hit song “Bad Idea” on the second half of the track, which reminds listeners just how well the two artists work together.
“STRENGTH BONUS” is a massive moment for this underground community as they keep building themselves towards the mainstream. The disregard for rules, introspection, and consistency makes blackwinterwells one of the most exciting new artists to watch continually grow.
