BIIANCO is the electronic chill-wave project of LA-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, Gabby Bianco. Identifying herself as queer, she keeps female empowerment at the epicenter of her music, hiring an all-womxn crew to execute her debut music video, single art and incorporating female collaborators throughout the EP.
“This song is about reclaiming my own confidence in my voice and my art. It’s about trusting your own artistic vision. When I was working on the production for this song, I was super inspired by Madame Gandhi and her speeches on feminism.”
BIIANCO added: “I started writing 13 Dead End Drive after a collaborator told me “I just wasn’t good enough to go anywhere” in the music industry. Their words hit super hard and devastated my confidence in my music. I recorded myself singing “this is going to ruin my voice” and chopped up those vocal samples, which ended up being the vocal samples that the chorus is based around. This song is about reclaiming my own confidence in my voice and my art. It’s about trusting your own artistic vision. When I was working on the production for this song, I was super inspired by Madame Gandhi and her speeches on feminism. I ended up hitting her up to put percussion on the song.”
Charming and cosmic, ’13 Dead End Drive’ is a soul searching vision of an artist, who has found her calling in music. The splitting doubts, frustrations, and angst, have settled down like volcano ashes and oddly but beautifully covers the world in its own unique sheen and delight.
BIIANCO’s talented single, drives that home, and then some, with tight production and arrangement.
