UNLEASH NEW SINGLE “WAKING UP THE NEIGHBORS”
(July 31, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA) – Today, rising alt-pop duo Bahari release a new single and music video entitled “Waking Up The Neighbors.” Get it HERE via Bahari Music, LLC/Epic Records/Heroine Music Group and watch the official music video below.
On the track, edgy vocals echo between tip-toeing strings and overpowering bass. The hypnotic duet flutters from haunting verses towards a dark invitation, “Treat me like a stranger. Pick your party favors. Fight until my face hurts. Waking up the neighbors.”
“Waking up the neighbors is an ode to the feeling of paranoia, the feeling of chaos in your mind when you realize that things are not as they seem,” says the duo. “This song stems from anxiety and we wanted to showcase the feelings we go through when having those emotions, by bringing in sonic elements that have drastic differences, like the silence, the dramatic drops, the screaming and then the soft harmonies.“
In the music video, the girls go for a covert midnight swim in a neighbor’s pool only to end up around a table choreographed in synch with an out of this world ritual… View it at your own peril now.
Once again, “Waking Up The Neighbors” showcases the depth and dynamics of Bahari’s world.
Earlier this month, they uncovered a special remix of their viral hit “Savage” featuring a new verse from rapper BIA, along with a brand new video, which Elevator Magazine called “intimate and dark.” The original track has generated over 100 million streams and was certified Gold by the RIAA. Watch the video for the remix HERE. Additionally, they joined an all-star bill for a virtual concert in celebration of the vinyl release of To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Original Soundtrack, in which their celebrated track “Crashing” with ILLENIUM is featured. Watch their performance HERE.
Get ready for Bahari to flip pop upside down in 2020.

Every so often, two separate journeys collide to form the perfect union in just the right place at just the right time. Bahari blossom from a similar confluence of circumstances. Singer and keyboardist Ruby Carr hails from the tiny island of Lamu off the coast of Kenya, while singer and bassist Natalia Panzarella was born in Nashville but grew up in Southern California. Each of their experiences shapes a dynamic, diverse, and dark take on alternative pop. Generating over 650 million streams and receiving acclaim from Ladygunn, Nylon, Billboard, Ones To Watch, and more, the Los Angeles-based duo bring a shared vision to life.
After meeting at a songwriting session at 16-years-old, the girls formed a lifelong bond. Shortly after, Bahari initially made waves with “Wild Ones,” which generated 38.1 million Spotify streams. They maintained a consistent pace with the Dancing on the Sun EP  and singles “Get Together” and “Fucked Up.” Along the way, they supported Selena Gomez and Birdy on tour and teamed up with Zedd, ILLENIUM and Grey for collaborations. After quietly grinding, Bahari earned a viral hit with 2018’s “Savage.” Not only did the song generate over 100 million total streams, but it also went Gold. Signing to Epic Records, the pair are gearing up for their 2020 full-length debut and much more to come.
