Los Angeles-residing experimental pop/electronic artist Ramsey is an electrifying rising star in the music scene who writes and produces all of her own material. She’s released a striking string of anguished, but alluring singles on SoundCloud that have racked up a massive amount of listens over the past several months, including the raw and passionate See You Bleed.
Ramsey pulls out all the emotive stops on this fraught-with-tension track, stalking with a dangerous hunger on the vivid verses amid the measured trip-hop beat, slowly swaying synths, and fluttering percussion. Entwining harmonies wrap around Ramsey’s potent lead vocals like vines as she swings from twisting, brooding lows to exalted, falsetto highs.
On the highly charged chorus sections a tortured Ramsey explodes boldly, crying to the skies and exposing her deepest desire, “…to see you bleed / Open you and set you free.” An emphatically smacked beat, frittering ticking rhythms, and sinuous wordless expressions push Ramsey’s emotional turmoil into overdrive, leaving the listener shaken – and stirred.
