Bio

Blame Game is single #3 for St.Ives, a duo comprising Perth vocalist Anna O'Neil and Melbourne producer Ariel Blum

The song continues the duo's love of mid 90's Trip Hop, drawing on influences like Massive Attack, Morcheeba and Tricky and integrating them into a sonic wonderland with shades of RnB and 60's psychedelia. Anna O Neil's vocals once again demonstrate why she has previously been heralded as having "one of the best voices in Australia right now" (Tonedaf,2016). O'Neil creates story laden with questions about how one navigates a world full of conflict, where social responsibility is deflected, and blame is pinned on the most vulnerable of people. Ariel Blum's production is once again weighty and colossal, choc full of drama and intensity.

Gorgeous harmonies and doubled vocals comin' out of Anna. It's moody, emotional and atmospheric. It's lovely.
