alayna is an artist I’ve been really excited about since I heard her debut track, “Falling Autumn” back in February. Her take on smooth R&B was instantly attractive and her gorgeous vocals sealed the deal. She followed it up with the even better “High Off You” which showed a more powerful side to the New Zealand native. “High Off You” is definitely a contender for my songs of the year list I make for myself every December (check out “High Off You” HERE). On the strength of those two singles alone, alayna became one of the artists I’m most excited about. This week she shared her third track, Bliss, and that trend is only continuing. Finding itself in between the laid back, mellow sound of “Falling Autumn” and the belting chorus of “High Off You”, “Bliss” ticks all the boxes of an incredible R&B song. It seems like alayna is gaining traction with every release and I can’t wait to see what she does next. She certainly is an artist to watch. Check out “Bliss” below.
So I understand that there are probably a good number of people out there that just want to hear new music, but don’t necessarily care to read what I have to say about it. Thankfully, I’m not at a point yet where I’m so vain I refuse to share music with people who aren’t interested in my opinions. With that in mind, I’m finally pulling the trigger on trying to make playlists a reality so people can listen to what I think are the best songs of the month without getting bogged down. For this month (and potentially subsequent months) I have selected my top 10 tracks. Hopefully you’ll take the time to listen, and if you feel so inclined, follow Symbiosis Music on Spotify or maybe even go back and read the associated posts. If you don’t have Spotify, I included a Soundcloud playlist as well. Hope you enjoy!
alayna is another artist I don’t understand why I didn’t cover their first song. She debuted earlier this year with the absolute knockout, “Falling Autumn”. The track immediately blew up all over the internet and has already racked up over 2 million plays on Spotify alone! It’s so good I’m going to throw it on the bottom of this post just so you can listen to it if you haven’t. “Falling Autumn” did an incredible job of marrying current R&B production (courtesy of astronomyy) with alayna’s outstanding vocals. Like her debut, newly released track, High Off You, boasts interesting, forward thinking production (this time thanks to Maths Time Joy), but more so than before, plays the role of laying the groundwork for alayna’s songwriting and powerful vocals to shine through. I’ve had it on repeat since it released and there are still new things I’m noticing that make me appreciate it even more. “High Off You” proves that alayna still has so much in her, and if she can continue to follow up these tracks as well as she did here, she’s definitely going places! Check out “High Off You” below and catch up on “Falling Autumn” if you missed it as well!
