AUDIO: *Aya – “Time & Metaphors”
*Aya released a new EP earlier this month. With their brilliant fusion of R&B, neo-soul and pop, *Aya’s second project brings eight songs where they explore themes of leaning into who they really are through increasingly vulnerable songwriting. They touch on letting go of insecurities (“Freeee”), having self-respect in a relationship (“Idfwt”), uncertainty about the future (“Idk”) and finding safety in solitude (“Apartment”) among other relatable personal topics. With “Time & Metaphors”, *Aya continues owning their power at the mic, finding comfort in floating grooves and melodic hooks that together create a striking, winding atmosphere.
