LISTEN | Montrealer laye's Striking Vocals Will Have You Swooning Over Her Single "Goldfinger"
We're swooning over laye, this new urban pop artist that just popped on our radar.
The Montreal-born singer/songwriter is a force. An old-soul with future quality, she gives off an aura that is desirable, mysterious and provoking. Her talent lies within the lyrics, as a writer, she lays down words so seamlessly, it is hard not to relate when listening to her music. For laye, emotions are at the heart of her creative inspiration:
“I believe that the emotion behind a song is equally as important as the lyric. Often times I have connected songs to moments based on the feeling alone.”
She's a multi-instrumentalist (piano/keys, guitar and ukulele) with a striking vocal style, prolific songwriting ability and a dark dreamy aesthetic that informs everything from her music to her social media feeds.
“I’ve always been a quiet person. Singing allowed me to not only discover who I am but also to express it,”
Her latest single, titled "Goldfinger" is catchy, yet evokes the right kind of emotions. It's like you've heard it before, yet you haven't. It's just good like that. The single comes accompanied by a pseudo-video, which you can stream below, and on any of your favourite platforms.
