Aisha Badru is a new York-based singer/songwriter with a voice that could seemingly move mountains if she whispered at them. She delivers airy vocals over stripped down production that forces you to focus on her voice and your emotions. “Waiting Around”, from her 2015 EP Vacancy, gave Aisha her first big break when it was selected by Volkswagen for an ad campaign in South Africa that went viral. Her next big break came in 2017 with the release of the song and video for “Mind on Fire.” The emotive song focuses on the overly-relatable theme of knowing the right thing to do but doing the opposite.
Today, we’re premiering the Nathan Presley directed video for Aisha Badru’s latest single “Bridges.”
“Bridges” is about surrendering to the fact that there will be obstacles that inevitably arise in even the most compatible relationships. As depicted in the music video, oftentimes the greatest obstacle that we will have to face is ourselves. - Badru
In the beautiful clip, a couple has to fight against a group of doppelgangers that represent the man’s demons. Proving that sometimes you have to stick it out with someone and support them while they fight their own internal battles. “Bridges” is the latest single from Aisha’s upcoming debut album Pendulum set to release in early 2018.
