Raia Was's "Reprise" is a powerful exercise in restraint, plays Berlin 3.6

The atmospheric, often ethereal soundscapes of Brooklyn’s Raia Was are perfectly executed exercises in restraint, where a powerful vocal performance sharply navigates the dimly lit labyrinth of downtempo art pop. Her most recent release “Reprise” is a focused, minimalist effort - a song that reads as a lonely internal monologue on a cold, winter night. Was’s vox never explodes or relies on any melodramatic twists and turns, but rather plays counterpoint to the track’s synthy elements, finding strength in its hushed, sometimes breathy qualities; it serves as a preview of more carefully crafted tunes on Raia’s forthcoming debut record, Angel I’m Frightened (Side A/ Side B), which drops this spring.

Raia Was will perform tracks from her upcoming LP at Berlin on March 6th, supported by fellow Brooklynite Harb. Stream “Reprise” below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt), Photo by Lissy Laricchia

Debut Fruut LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Lyrical vulnerability meshes with silky beats in the recordings of Fruut, the latest moniker of Dani Mullen. There’s a graceful, anti-gravity quality to these electropop sounds. With the new album All About You, Mullen explores emotive-laced circumstances in songs whose experiences feel as though they’re being processed/lived through in real time. Intimately hypnotic, these tracks capture an endearing closeness.

New Body Electric's Newest Single

This past Monday, New Body Electric released a single, “Cash Cache.” As indicated by the title, the song is about the relationship artists form with the money needed to support themselves and their art. It’s a fairly serious topic, one the band handles with delicate sensibility. It’s actually a cheerful song, with a pleasantly immersive melody and vocals that are just the right amount of breathy. What makes it strong is the quiet but persistent sense of melancholy underlying each note. It’s the perfect song for when you’re tired of feeling sad, and you need to ease yourself into a better mood.

On Friday, New Body Electric will be playing a release show at The Cruzroom Annex. Motorcoat will also be playing a set. You can find out more information on the event's Facebook page
