We Are Definitely Not Over SAYAH’s Heady New Slice Of Electro-Pop

sayah.jpg

He’s not over me” croons SAYAH in the infectiously singable chorus of her freshly minted electro-pop offering of the same name, and TBH neither are we.

The Sydney-based singer is just getting warmed up, kicking off 2019 with a huge bang(er). ‘He’s Not Over Me’ marks the first slice of a mysterious new new body of work from SAYAH, and sounds like the heady musical lovechild of Flume and Meg Mac (on what planet would that not be a winning combo?) 

The quirky vocalist’s sultry soul-infused vocals drive this dancefloor-friendly bop, cascading over woozy synths, hypnotic bursts of production and modest percussion that nonetheless delivers the kind of contagious rhythms that tug at your fingers to start clicking.

After topping the triple J Unearthed Pop Chart with her 2017 debut single ‘Addicts’ and sharing the stage with the likes of pop megastar Ruel, SAYAH has already kicked some serious career goals, and we can’t wait to see what else she has up her stylish sleeves in the year to come.

Imbi the girl - reveals smooth sentimental slice ‘Angel face’

GoodIntent-imbithegirl-PromoWeb.jpg

Last week, Sydney-based rapper / pop artist Imbi The Girl released their stunning debut EP, ‘For Me’. Filled with five meticulously penned and produced eclectic tracks, the record is sure to bring much joy to listeners, much like previously released singles ‘Swell’, ‘V.I.P.’ and ‘Acidic’

Today, we focus on one of the newly released songs, the melancholic ‘Angel Face’ - a trip-hop, soul and electronica-infused number boasting intricate yet smooth cadences and brooding, stripped-back production and beats.

While largely poignant, the track maintains buoyancy as it ebbs and flows with Imbi’s poetic vocals, melding an intense sense of conviction with a feeling of vulnerability and compelling hooks.

‘Angel Face’ tells the story of when Imbi was craving creative release by painting, but didn’t have the means to do so – thus affecting their state of mental health.

As luck would have it, one day Imbi came across some abandoned canvases. Though already covered in thick and textured paints, Imbi tried to smooth it out for use, but was unsuccessful in their efforts to do so.

Regardless, Imbi got to work on an artwork that took them three weeks to complete. Painting over the existing textures, they still managed to create something beautiful that ended up being one of their favourite works to date.

Imbi The Girl – you’re a charmer. Always one for optimism and the view of a half-full cup.
