The UK country music scene is constantly rising at the moment and we’re bringing you a brand new single from one of our favourite artists, Vic Allen. It’s called Blinded and it’s the follow up to her much loved EP Between The Lines. Released via GingerDog Records, this is definitely her finest recording to date.
Blinded has everything you might expect from a modern country-pop song, a heart wrenching storyline completed with the classic tones of an acoustic guitar. Vic Allen takes everything to the next level with this one though, her voice shines brighter than ever before and the production is simply pristine. With a huge love for Nashville, Vic combines her American influences with a British twist to create a song that will draw any country fan in.
With a steady mid-tempo, there’s plenty of time to soak everything up. The layered harmonies fit perfectly and the soft slide guitar in the background is just wonderful. Built upon a theme of a break up, Blinded comes across as an emotional, dramatic song. There are empowering strings that gradually fade in and really bring everything to life. Overall, Blinded is a stunning country-pop track that is full of outstanding instrumentation.
Vic Allen has had a massively busy 2018 and will keep her momentum flowing by recording even more songs to go towards her debut album. As well as being a part of the Write Like A Girl tour earlier this year, Vic has performed at the likes of Buckle and Boots festival, had plenty of plays on BBC Radio and received praise from blogs all over the UK.
Vic returns to Nashville again next month (September) for some inspiration and we can’t wait to hear what she comes up with next. Listen to Blinded below and be sure to keep up to date with her music here.
