In this edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to i am niamh and her latest single ‘Bellend’.
Taken from the artist’s sprawling debut album Wonderland, i am niamh’s ‘Bellend’ is a twisting turning journey into the alternative-pop sound of the single’s parent record.
Chiming bells, building vocal harmonies and deep synth textures all create the dense musical backdrop that defines ‘Bellend’. Add to this is the reaching central vocal and sense of lyrical ambiguity and you are left with one of the stand-out moments in an album filled with vivd production and creativity.
