In these tumultuous times, it’s natural to want to sit back and reminisce on those hazy sun-filled days as a teenager: few responsibilities, endless fun, and, of course, those spontaneous trips that always turned out to be the best. Letting us relive all these precious moments with her latest cocktail of woozy guitars and serene vocals is dream-pop poet THALA with “Weep”. Merging thoughtful lyrics with 70s retro vibes, the singer draws on inspiration from the likes of Mazzy Star and Beach House for her latest single, pulling on their charismatic sound and relaxing soundscapes. Using her angelic vocals to dictate the production, the Berlin-hailed singer serves up a wistful single with hints of country – just the ticket to get you in the mood for summer.
“I wrote ‘Weep’ thinking about how many times I have said ‘no’ to someone wanting a relationship and of how many ‘no’s’ I have received in return,” THALA revealed. “One of the most important things it stands for is though, that you can’t expect people to make your life better if you yourself still haven’t figured out, whatever it is that makes you happy and thrive in life.”
Taken from her forthcoming debut album, Adolescence – which is set for release this September – we’re expecting more calming soundscapes and sincere storytelling.
