Italian-born (and London-based) multidisciplinary artist heka releases a new single “april (away)”, which is the first one for her new label Practise Music.
The song begins with a haunting guitar melody that sets a melancholic tone. Heka’s vocals are soft and ethereal, almost whisper-like, as she sings the opening lines: “Spit the millionth reason / in spite of what you say / April’s foolish every day”. The lyrics evoke a sense of longing and a desire to escape from reality, somewhere in the hiding place.
As the track progresses, more tension arises, forming a beautiful and haunting piece that showcases heka’s talent for creating immersive and emotional soundscapes.
With her new EP (a) arriving on May 19 via Balloon Machine Records, Italian-born (and London-based) multidisciplinary artist heka is giving us the newest taster of what to expect, an affecting new single “(a) dab”.
Beautifully performed, it is a soundtrack to a very particular mood and state of mind, a minimalist and emotive piece of music for late and quiet evenings.
