Shannen Bamford, a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from Liverpool, has been making waves in the music scene with her sultry vocals and vulnerable lyrics. Drawing inspiration from artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Alvvays, and Oh Wonder, Bamford has been captivating audiences with her unique blend of dream pop and indie folk sounds. And now, with her latest single “Hallucinate,” she’s taking a step in a new direction.

Teaming up with esteemed producer Uri Kleinman, Bamford sheds a funky new light on Dua Lipa’s hit song “Hallucinate.” The duo released their stripped-down rendition on January 19th, and it’s already garnering attention for its infectious energy and fresh take on the original track.

Bamford, who has been performing in iconic venues in New York City since her relocation from the UK in 2018, wanted to experiment with a more mainstream pop sound. “While my own music and inspiration veer more in the chill dream pop direction, I thought it would be fun to try something different,” she explains. “I’ve always loved ‘Hallucinate,’ especially the bass line and vocal melody, and I thought who better to play it with than bass extraordinaire and producer Uri Kleinman.”

The result is a funky and energetic rendition that stays true to the original’s upbeat and sexy nature while also showcasing Bamford’s vocal prowess. With a wall of layered backing vocals, picked acoustic guitar, and a thumping bass line, the track is a perfect blend of Bamford’s dream pop roots and the pop sensibilities of Dua Lipa’s original version.

Bamford’s “Hallucinate” is a testament to the evolution of music genres and how artists can break free from their traditional sound to explore new territories. This trend can be seen in the music industry with artists like Taylor Swift, who has shifted from country to pop, and Billie Eilish, who blends elements of pop, electronic, and alternative sounds in her music.

As Bamford continues to experiment and push boundaries with her music, she joins the ranks of genre-defying artists who are creating a new wave of music that knows no bounds. With her captivating vocals and unique sound, she is definitely one to watch in the music industry. “Hallucinate” is just a taste of what’s to come from this talented artist.
