The Sydney-based act will be in Manila this week for a series of shows
Sydney-based artist BIRDEE 王煒 is slated to release her triumphant new single ‘Best Mistake I Never Made’ via Disruptive Entertainment.
According to the alt-pop singer-songwriter, the electro-pop track is about someone pleading for another chance, despite the situation being completely irreparable.
BIRDEE 王煒 shares, “Best Mistake I Never Made is about a boy who wanted another chance that I never gave. You can call it a diss track, but to me, it’s being selfishly confident in having healthy boundaries. We tend to focus on the mistakes we have made, but we never reflect on the mistakes we narrowly avoided.”
The song starts off with a dreamy and atmospheric soundscape, with BIRDEE 王煒 in reflective mode, contemplating what went before: “Should’ve had everything, it would’ve been all mine, could’ve, but we didn’t try; you were the best mistake I never made.” The chorus then crashes in with an electronic immediacy, powerful synths, and thumping kick drums, giving a euphoric feeling of a close escape.
“Best Mistake I Never Made” follows BIRDEE 王煒’s 2nd EP release, ‘On My Own’, and its accompanying headline tour in several cities across Australia.
BIRDEE 王煒 will also be staging a couple of shows in the Philippines
