Good heavens – this guy, this song! Where to begin? The moment “Guttersnipe” began I sensed it would be special. It launches in with the perfect head-nodding combo of steady, pleasant strumming complimented by a constant hushed beat. An eternal :33 seconds of anticipation builds before Bhi Bhiman (pronounced Bee Beeman) decides to draw us in with his poignant storytelling.
So you’re listening, listening, thinking “oh this is nice” when, BAM, he hits that high note and it’s game over: Bhi 1, listener 0, “your soul is mine” Mortal Kombat style. In other words, this song manages to strike your soul…but in the most calm, resolute way.
Most artists are capable of expressing passion with their voices; however, very, very few have the ability to express patience. Bhi nailed it.
