R &B, pop and a hint of Afro-swing all meet in ‘Googling’, the latest track from upcoming, indie singer-songwriter, B Written. Starting off the year with a banger, the Cardiff-based musician returns with the vibrant, ‘virtual’ music video instalment of the hit single, directed by Hope Rose.
Over a gently repeating guitar rhythm, electronic drum beats and subtly reverbed but harmonious vocals, B Written tells the story of a girl who’s just too quick to fall in love. Often exploring themes of love, heartbreak and life in the modern age, B Written seamlessly weaves in witty lines about the perils of internet dating and social media to reflect the music video, which cleverly takes inspiration from Imvu and The Sims characters to portray the storyline. B Written’s RnB-fused vocals articulate lyrics that are candid and relatable whilst the tuneful pop beat adds a welcomed summery feel to the track.
Listen to B Written – Googling
“‘Googling’ narrates us through a modern day, virtual love story that looks perfect to the online audience but proves that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. It is a reflection to our social climate and how the digital perception of us has become more important than the real thing, revealing the dark side to what people will really do for status and clout. The truth is you can design your virtual life from scratch; you can paint a picture of your lifestyle, love life and happiness to please total strangers. Did you ever really love me for me or did you only love me for what I could give you? Was it real or just virtual reality?”– B Written.
