Beautiful, slow-moving one from AYA YVES. She sounds really comfortable in this zone and it bodes well for what's to come next from a versatile new act.

Some very clever little production decisions with those manipulated vocals over the top of warm chords to bring this classic piece of songwriting smiling into 2020 and beyond. Infused with warmth and modernity.

This track has its foot in two camps, where it could be stripped back to its bare acoustic bones or hammed up to a thicc electronic edit. I'm impressed you've hit that middle ground so flawlessly.

Love that you've resisted any urge to overcomplicate what is undeniably an excellent pop record. Refined and polished while never over-glossed.

This tune is like a beautiful alien. The marvellous nature of AYA YVES' musicality is the mysterious dark vibes she taunts you with.

prepare to be sonically steamrolled with some of the coolest dark pop production you've heard in 2020.

Confident boss moves from AYA YVES. This smouldering pop track is bang on target.

What an incredible voice, wooooah. So nicely paired with that slow production, from the start to the finish. An awesome debut

The opening made me think this was going to be the sort of stripped back record that silenced a crowded room and it was, until you hit than chorus which will will quite simply bowl that room over.

You had me literally stopping in my tracks and paying full attention when that chorus kicked in, so good!

Ok, so for the first 15 seconds I'm in the Stranger Things' Upside Down dimension. Then suddenly I'm having fun up until 00:41 - when I'm reminded through a slow-building tension that the Upside Down world is still there somewhere looming, before I'm suddenly happy again, maybe because Steve Harrington showed up??

Ok, so for the first 15 seconds I'm in the Stranger Things' Upside Down dimension. Then suddenly I'm having fun up until 00:41 - when I'm reminded through a slow-building tension that the Upside Down world is still there somewhere looming, before I'm suddenly happy again, maybe because Steve Harrington showed up?? All I know is this song is a stranger thing and I love it. It definitely demands the listener's attention/interest again and again.

A really interesting track that doesn't let you settle on a sound. It has genuinely made the hairs on my neck standup, a masterful control on that nervous energy to create a unique listening experience.
