[video] heka – april (away)

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.

It is another audio jewel from the rising lo-fi star, a fragile and emotive piece with a healthy dose of darkness in it.
