New Zealand’s Alayna has released a new mellow cut called ‘Sweet Soul’.
The new track sees the newcomer place her silky vocals over a gorgeous evolving beat. Rolling hi-hats and gliding basses lay the foundation for Alayna as she points out the romantic sentiments latched to our human faults. Listen to the super-smooth ‘Sweet Soul‘ below.
“Sweet soul was a song that kind of came out of nowhere” explains Alayna, who wrote the song as a note to herself. “I was getting way too anxious about the future, about what my purpose is, who I really am. And I just needed to forget it all for a bit and for someone to tell me it’s going to be okay. I wanted to try and remember where my younger self’s headspace was, where nothing was too big to overcome and that anything can be fixed. I found that I can find that sweetness in people too, a few moments in my life I’ve just needed to sit with someone and talk until we drift off somewhere else. Sometimes you just want to hear something good.”
Now residing in New York, the NZ-native is prepping for a big year having already amassed 7 million streams on her Spotify tracks alone.
