Fusing garage-pop with psych, classic soul, and 60’s-inflected guitar riffs, Victim is the latest catchy single from LA’s Veronica Bianqui. Written as a liberating anthem about coming to terms with and breaking free from co-dependent, self-destructive behaviors that so many of us experience on a daily basis, Bianqui explores the struggle to break free from these emotional and psychological traps. Speaking on the single, she says:
“I wrote this song when I started discovering how being emotionally co-dependent has negatively affected my life by creating a pattern of self-victimization. Now, to me, it represents the hope for addicts to escape from their cycle of addiction. I hope it serves as inspiration for addicts and their loved ones around the world that you can put your foot down and change—that you don’t have to be a victim, like my sister—and so many millions of others—unfortunately have been.”
With the growing opioid epidemic in the US and the recent untimely death of her sister at the age of 35, who struggled with drug addiction for years, Bianqui is donating 100% of the proceeds to Harm Reduction Coalition.
