The new single ‘Desperate’ from upcoming singer-songwriter Gillian Heidi is an authentic and nuanced offering for such a young artist. It’s hard to believe she’s just 16 when you hear the rich tone and impressive range of her voice, delivering sweet harmonies and a lot of conviction. The pop track has moments of hip-hop and R&B, with the bass heavy bridge reminiscent of Billie Eilish. Her lyrics are filled with unreserved emotion, demonstrating the boldness and potential of this Boston-based artist.
Speaking of her new single, Gillian said: “I think that ‘Desperate’ really sets the tone of the album. It was one of the first songs I wrote for the album and it’s one of my favorites."
The album she alludes to is her debut full-length ‘3AM’, expected later this year. She has already released two singles from the record - ‘High’ and ‘Static’ - which were received well. Since she emerged onto the scene last year with her independently released EP ‘Unfiltered’, this talented teen has accumulated over 300K combined streams on Spotify. This year is set to be particularly formative for Gillian Heidi as we eagerly await the release of ‘3AM’.
