Sonya Teclai "Far Away"
Been vibin' to this one all day. I just got put on to the sounds of NY based singer/songwriter, Sonya Teclai, and I’m sure one play of this new joint will have you on the fanboy train too. Sonya just released her third single, “Far Away” from her upcoming EP, Heatwave. The track (produced by $/\UCE and Marzboygenius) has that new age r&b sound I tend to fall for. Says Sonya of the song: "I chose 'Far Away' because I love the drum patterns and the juxtaposition of it with the content. The song is about the feelings I've dealt with in the past when I noticed rifts in my old relationships. When you're fighting to make it work because you love them, but also realize your happiness is being compromised and that's not something you're willing to let go of to be with them. That's always a difficult position to be in, where no one really wants to step up and initiate that it's not working or come to that conclusion because they fear being without the other. The song goes through the motions of it...with an ill bounce so you're not wallowing.” Be on the lookout for more from Sonya coming soon (hopefully she won’t make us long on that Heatwave EP).
