Post-Punk Goes Pop Neils Bacher – Insecure

Posted on 25 August 2021

Neils Bacher’s latest single, Insecure, exposes his boldly vulnerable songwriting style at its finest. His preceding single, Too Sick to Love, set the bar high; with Insecure, he created a melancholic plateau far above it.

After nods to the Verve in the prelude, the alt-electro pop hit transgresses into an electrifying synth-driven post-punk track with trip-hop beats and Bacher pouring his heart out into clever vocal hooks around the fiery melodies that gear up to the same frenetic momentum that you would find on a Poison Ivy record.

You’d be seriously hard-pressed to find a more honest lyricist; Bacher succeeds not just in exploring a fraught, often stigmatised, emotion and leaving no proverbial stone unturned in Insecure. He also succeeds in creating a sonic experience so chilling that those deliverances of bitter truths hit with maximum evocative impact.

Insecure is now available to stream on Spotify.
