The multi-genre songstress of electro-pop, Sôra, has released a new song ‘Sakura’ via Colligence Records recently. The track is a velvety smooth production with soothing vocals throughout. Towards the end of the track, the listener is treated to a spoken word/rap breakdown. Just like the cherry blossom trees the song is named after, ‘Sakura’ elegantly adorns any atmosphere it finds itself in.
Sôra’s latest compelling single ‘Sakura’ shapes dreams and desires into an atmospheric aura of charming resonance; ethereal tones lead onto Sôra’s crystal clear, velvetine vocal delivery held together by deep, smooth basslines, unpredictable percussive hooks and genre-bent spoken word or hip-hop infused section while spilling vulnerable yet confrontational lyrics atop energetic builds.
Speaking on the latest single – Sôra states,
“While conceiving the instrumentals, a whole Japanese feeling came to mind, unexpectedly. Then I wrote the lyrics of this song that became more of a poem, an ode about life & death: a Sakura. It’s kind of the spiritual song of the EP and one the most eclectic! The song finishes with some rap, inspired by our beloved Kendrick.”
