‘Her work is haunting, almost spiritual. With its heavy focus on vocals and on the lyrics themselves, Berne’s music is the kind that you want to stop whatever you are doing so you can focus not only on the aural pleasure, but also on the meaning behind it.’
The Sunday Times of Malta, March 2015
Drawn towards writing dark, intriguing and ultimately relatable songs, Berne’s broad vocal range and arresting vocal delivery, offer poignancy and drama to linger within your mind long after her tracks have left your ears. Berne is inspired by the realities that surround us in our daily struggles, taking influence from artists such as Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, Agnes Obel and Marina Diamandis.
Her endeavours in contemporary music drew her to front the award-winning indie band Bletchley Park topping the charts twice in her home country of Malta. Berne’s debut single ‘India’ was crowned ‘Best Single Release’ for 2012 by The Sunday Times of Malta and she counts Jamie Cullum among her growing fans.
Having headlined Rock the South Festival Malta in April 2015, Berne is set to release her hauntingly enigmatic piano-heavy single ‘In the Woods’ on 16 October, and her long-awaited debut EP ‘Conversation’ will follow on 13 November.
