As the first single of her upcoming album “Rise“ the young R&B singer Bianca Aristía based in Leipzig, Germany chose a dramatic entrance - a song about the ups and downs of life and the phases of “Growing Pains”, that change you and, despite their discomfort, create a more fulfilling life in the end. She describes her style as “Indie R&B” with various influences and her powerful voice in the center of performance. The singer took a break from releasing music after reaching the quarter finals in the TV Show “The Voice of Germany” in 2012 and her following CD “Inevitable”. In the meantime she finished her Bachelor’s Degree in Voice and dove deeper into the music she wanted to make, working with her band. She toured all over Europe and collected songs, gradually creating the vision of her upcoming album “Rise”, which is a very personal story.
Almost everything about “Growing Pains” is self-made. The singer wrote the song in a turbulent phase of finding who she wants to be. Thanks to her long-term experience in creating electronic music herself, she knew exactly how she wanted her music to sound. The record was produced and mixed by Bianca Aristía and Lennart Jahn, who also plays in her band, that greatly inspired the arrangement and gave it more of a live touch in the choruses. Together they created a unique sound rooted in modern R&B/Pop with influences of Rock and Hip Hop/Trap. It’s a song of contrast - Beginning quiet yet suspenseful with Aristía’s warm voice accompanied by an ambient pad. Loaded with emotions the singer enters the chorus showing her “Growing Pains“, which she calls “the messengers of change”. After the hook-line with harmonized soulful vocals, the second verse moves on surrounded by a slow hip hop beat. Aristía’s expressive vocals carry deep emotions and climax with insight on what happened: „This thing you fear most is a metamorphosis paving your way towards a brand new life“. Then there comes contrast and the chorus is torn apart by a screaming rock guitar and live drums symbolizing heavy waves of life hitting . The song continues with a sung rap showing off rhythmical and pithy vocals and eventually returns to a meditative and intimate part just to be torn apart one last time by a powerful chorus with the words “My heart beats out of time...”.
Growing Pains impresses with its modern R&B/Pop sound combined with the refreshing rawness of live guitar and excellent vocals. Bianca Aristía skillfully manages to convey the feeling of this story. With this whole package coming from a young, self-made artist, who doesn’t just sing, but also created the music herself, go ahead and let yourself be drawn into the experience of “Growing Pains”. < Show less
