We’re going to confess right at the start here that we know very little about This Bliss.
But what we do know is fairly enticing. The Boston-based band, which features Party Bois beat-maker and New Alliance East mastermind Nick Zampiello, are attempting to introduce us to a new musical genre called “true grime”. Their first shot at owning what’s sure to be every music website’s preferred buzz genre come 2017 arrives via a seductive debut single called “Simmer 2X”. They even made a video for it.
The single is a chilled-out and mindful pop track, which gently gliding along realms of trip-hop and R&B without falling completely into either. At its chorus peak, the confidence of vocalist Jess Baggia oozes out of the speakers, and the tune rages at just the right levels.
