This album blends a diverse array of influences, from folk and Americana to ambient and indie..... “Change,” the lead single, explores the daunting nature of transformation and emotional complexity.

It’s an album that invites listeners to dive deep into the depths of their own psyche, exploring themes of healing, growth, and introspection along the way.
'Change’ feels particularly in homage to Alison Goldfrapp, with the swirling electronics and the personality shining through her vocals. ‘Ketamine Vacation’ is full of luscious soundscapes and textures for listeners to wrap their ears around, and ena b. could be your new favourite discovery this week.

Melancholy in music cannot be implemented much more magnificently.
Bachinger, who began her musical studies several years ago in Jerusalem, brings together a variety of textures and styles to this immediately arresting and ultimately rewarding offering. The results are a smoky and atmospheric mid-tempo number that catches the listener’s attention both with its western-tinged sepia groove, its pop sensibility, and, most importantly, the warm, wise-beyond-her-years vocals, which at times recall the late great British singer-songwriter Kirsty MacColl.

"Make Room"
Musically the song features a mellow finger-picked, clean electric guitar paired with Verena’s subdued yet soulful and heartfelt lead vocal. Strings color the mix along with minimalist percussion and bass. Soft background vocal harmonies swell in the chorus. The sound is soft, sad and beautiful.
The atmosphere of this record is unique and the production work is polished. It was a great experience from start to finish and left us very excited to listen to aka Verena Bachinger’s next projects.
Verena Bachinger exhibits herself as a singer whose voice has something charismatic about it, a vibration that sounds more confident than vulnerable. With “Break the Hush“ the young songwriter has definitely made a really impressive debut, one that makes you want more.
