Raised on Madonna Records, Tarantino Soundtracks, and 90’s Punk – Bebe Panthere is an emerging singer and songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York.
With an exotic look, long flowing pink hair and an exuberant style that reflects a pastiche of counter culture – it’s hard to imagine Bebe, in her youth, playing classical piano and violin to appease her traditional family.
Her upcoming debut EP, Pink Sweat features her recent pop single “Competition” :-
We had a listen:
Tremolo arm at the ready? You betcha!
Because this has got more vibrato than Duane Eddy bouncing on a rolla-bolla board.
Drums are discharged like bullets. And the vocal swoops in like a naked-shanked screech owl with a score to settle.
Bebe’s voice is so wonderfully juicy – it’s like a gobfull of starburst chews.
After a short military drum-roll the song really gets going – then its a festival of colour for the ears.
Unusually sassy and hypnotically effervescent breath-play by a girl who has, obviously, got the lot …
