alayna – Sweet Soul

“Sweet Soul” is a vibey new single from alayna that’s short and sweet, yet manages to deliver so much in an incredibly compelling way. alayna’s voice is smooth and controlled, resting somewhere between an airy falsetto and a mellow croon. The chorus is an earworm that stays with you long after the song ends and there’s something haunting about how alayna sings it.

The production is perfect for this kind of song; sparse and deliberate, with swelling synths, light percussion elements (including tasteful hi-hats), and minimal guitar. Together is creates an awesome atmosphere that’s compelling in its sparse darkness.

“Sweet Soul” highlights alayna’s incredible vocals and I have no doubt 2018 will be a great year for this talented artist.
