Image result for VERONICA BIANQUI - " Victim "

There is so much to dig about the songwriter, where do we begin? The Los Angeles touring artist has made a name for herself in her band The Blank Tapes and we have a feeling she will explode into a larger musical consciousness with her debut solo album due out next year. She seamlessly weaves in and out of garage rock, dipping into ‘60’s pop, and even shows a small jazz sparkle that together, forms one of the hippest and most intriguing sounds we have heard this year. Sonically speaking, “Victim” transports us to a sun-drenched beach, but lyrically there is a personal meaning behind it. With the current state of the opioid epidemic and the recent death of her sister who struggled with addiction,

Bianqui felt compelled to write the track and donate 100% of proceeds to Harm Reduction Coalition. “I wrote this song when I started discovering how being emotionally co-dependent has negatively affected my life by creating a pattern of self-victimization. Now, to me, it represents the hope for addicts to escape from their cycle of addiction. I hope it serves as inspiration for addicts and their loved ones around the world that you can put your foot down and change—that you don’t have to be a victim, like my sister—and so many millions of others.
