Bastian Baker has the power to transport you to another place with his first UK release, ‘SIX’. The singer-songwriter from Switzerland, who is currently on tour with Shania Twain, delivers a cascade of music and words through rippling guitar lines, soaring strings, and rich, honest vocals.
‘SIX’ outlines six days in a relationship:
Day 1 was a blast,
And it happened so fast I held on to you tight
You’re my guiding light
Day 2, nothing new,
I’d been missing you too,
You mesmerized my body when you whispered I love you.
And so on it goes
The story we’ve all been told
The story of our own
Bastian says, “I wrote ‘SIX’ after spending a week in Los Angeles, with a girl I had been seeing on & off for a couple of years. I was staying at her place and although we had the best time the first two days, it quickly became more complicated.
What had happened that week got me thinking – you know how they say that the seventh year is the most complicated year in a relationship? That week I had the feeling that the last 7 days I had experienced with this girl were maybe the equivalent of 7 years in other relationships.”
There is a fluidity to the song and this is emphasised in the minimalistic music video where Bastian’s emotions are clear to see. The pain, the passion, they are enhanced in a romanticized glow.
