BIC RUNGA : Drive
The Australian record buying public fell in love with New Zealand songstress Bic Runga’s single ‘Sway’ back in 1997, providing Bic with her first taste of overseas chart success. It peaked at No.10 here in Australia and was plastered across radio station playlists around the country. But it was 1995’s ‘Drive’ – the singer’s first ever single (and the title track of her debut album) that resonated with us – and still does. The track’s effortless simplicity, telling a tale of a new found love, narrated by Bic’s hauntingly beautiful vocals wraps its arms around you with such familiarity and warmth that it’s impossible not to love. Sublime.
