Nearly two years ago This Bliss teased us in all sorts of seductive sonic ways with a debut single that we couldn’t stop thinking about for quite some time. The Cambridge-based project led by vocalist Jess Baggia (of Man Trouble) and producer Nick Zampiello (he of Party Bois fame, and also the owner of New Alliance East Mastering in Cambridge) then went relatively quiet, according to our records, but have lived up to the early promise and hype with another strong single called “Believe.” The track finds a confident middle ground between shimmering electronic-pop and heavy-beat alt-R&B, and sets an intriguing tone for This Bliss’ debut album, titled Forensic Styles and billed as “a cinematic dreamscape that explores the world of trip-hop and electronica—through the lens of a crime novelist.” The LP is out September 14 via Mint 400 Records, and the next night This Bliss celebrates its release down at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge with Schooltree and The Macrotones. We “Believe” in This Bliss, and we think you will, too. Featured image by Joshua Pickering Photography.
