Gritty rock/pop group Bastette have released a brand new single and music video for ‘Rollercoaster’! It’s taken from their forthcoming ep ‘Exposed’, out 17th September and available to pre-order now! Check out the video below and look out for the band on tour with Marisa and the Moths and MASSIVE!
“I am the rollercoaster”, explains Bastette’s singer songwriter Caroline Kenyon. “I take things to the extreme, I mean who doesn’t want a rush? We have two selves, one that chases the high and one that comes down from it. My highs and lows are representative of my relationship with another. Most people can relate to the desire of chasing a thrill, craving speed and height, whether that’s riding too fast on a motorbike or going to a gig. I think this particular song expresses those powerful desires. It’s describes a passionate, yet poisonous relationship intertwined with a mutual obsession for music, leather and sex. Of course, with highs there are lows, and in those low times I thrived, expressing myself through creation. Rollercoaster took me 10 months to finish and it tells my journey as I lived it. As the relationship ended, the song was complete.”
‘Rollercoaster’ is taken from Bastette’s forthcoming new ep ‘Exposed’ and follows the release of acclaimed singles ‘Talk About It’ and ‘Sick & Twisted’. ‘Exposed’ was recorded at the Lounge Recording Studio in Wigan with producer Gareth Nuttall (Frank Turner) and meshes sparkling rock sonics and gritty pop smarts with original songwriting that lyrically resonates with real life. Each track on the ep is laid to bare with exploration of betrayal, love, sex, control, manipulation, and passion all moulded into one, but authentically asks ‘how much of it is real, and how much of it is fantasy’?
To support the release of their new music Bastette has a number of shows booked that includes a UK tour with Marisa and the Moths, plus special guest slots to Transvision Vamp legend Wendy James, and Aussie rockers Massive on a number of their UK dates!
