Gin Wigmore – Beatnik Trip

New Zealand singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore (nΓ©e Virginia Claire) has a voice that sits halfway between Amy Winehouse en Duffy. She broke through in 2004, when she beat 11.000 songwriting aspirants from 77 countries and won an American songwriting competition. She recorded her debut album Holy Smoke with Ryan Adams’s band, The Cardinals, in 2009.

Later this year, the singer will release her fourth album. So far, she put out three singles off it: Dirty Mercy, Hallow Fate and My Little Corner Of The World. Beatnik Trip is number four. A real summer single, with its foot-stomping percussion section, horn arrangement and Wigmore’s soulful vocals.

The new song, in addition to being featured on her forthcoming album, is the second collaboration from Gin’s new GirlGang project, in which acclaimed New York City cartoonist Liana Finck created the lyric video.
