After delighting us all by way of her debut single ‘Aphrodite’ back in 2020, the stunning Brigitte Bardini is back with her latest track, the luscious ‘Wild Ride’.

Having originally put her psychology degree on hold to venture into the world of music, it turns out that this leap of faith was a rather fruitful endeavour for Melbourne artist Brigitte Bardini, who has received nothing but widespread acclaim since the release of ‘Aphrodite’ back in June of 2020.

Since then, fans have hungrily been anticipating the release of new music from Bardini, with their appetites being satiated at long last by way of the mesmerising ‘Wild Ride’.

Written and recorded in her home studio, before featuring the talents of Toyland Studios’ Adam Calaitzis, ‘Wild Ride’ is a rather fitting tribute to Bardini’s own journey that led to her career in music. As such, the track begins rather unassumingly, with guitar and bass being joined by a powerful mix of strings and flute, while Bardini’s voice floats atop it all, taking this piece of folk-pop into ethereal new territory.

“‘Wild Ride’ is a coming of age track written about my decision to take a risk and pursue music full time,” Bardini says of the song. “It’s very fitting as I feel like it symbolises my entering further into the music industry, and is an opportunity for my audience to get to know me on a more intimate level due to the confessional lyrics.

“It’s a track that really took on a mind of its own, becoming relevant at every crossroad that has presented itself since I wrote the demo. It holds a great significance to me as it’s an open book and offers me nothing to hide behind, so I see it as a powerful tool to grow as a person and as an artist.”

While ‘Wild Ride’ serves as the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Aphrodite’, it also serves as a taster of what’s to come from Bardini, specifically on her forthcoming debut album Stellar Lights, which is on track to be released this year.
