Bastette – Ferocious Egyptian godess in the form of a Lioness and…… A Powerhouse Rock / Pop act hailing from Blackburn, fronted by the Lioness herself Caroline Eve Kenyon. Bastette was formed in early 2019 and is the brain child of singer songwriter Caroline, accompanied by her full time band. Bastette deliver modern alternative Rock and draw inspiration from the likes of Halestorm and The Pretty Reckless. Caroline has a powerful vocal reminiscent of Florence and The Machine and delivers her music with swagger and panache.
Bastette’s journey although cut short this year due to COVID has not stopped from them progressing, writing and playing as many socially distanced shows as they can weather that be Caroline and her guitar or the full band, there is no stopping Bastette as they take to the studio later this month with Dave Draper (The Wildhearts, Jazmin Bean) to lay down a brand new track for the upcoming EP.
‘Stand Back‘ is a song that draws from Caroline’s personal experience’s of betrayal and hurt. Here’s what Caroline has to say about the song. “’Stand Back‘ is about finding strength and power in the darkest betrayal, it is about people close to me trying to hurt me by taking away what is most important to me. Truth always prevails and these people are no longer in my life, out of this experience ‘Stand Back‘ was born, Its jungle beat, punky guitars and soaring vocals make you want to move, its upbeat and powerful.. so turn the volume up and just let it all out”
‘Stand Back‘ will be available from all platforms on Friday 16th October 2020
Bastette truly are a fresh, fierce and colourful blast of fresh air, swagger, high heels and a voice so powerful it will leave you breathless and hankering for more.
