Asiahn – “Get Away” (Official Video)
Close your eyes and before you know what’s happening this angelic hum welcomes you into a song. Immediately it feels familiar but the lyrics are borrowed the sound is unlike anything you’ve heard before. The pandemic has reminded us how we’ve taken for granted the luxury of waking up and getting away, especially with one you love. “Get Away”delivers an escapist dream of a better world in the arms of a lover, with a warm orchestral instrumental by Dreek Beatz. Even though Asiahn has only granted us five songs, The Interlude is a vast release, demonstrating the wide-ranging feelings you can experience when you take a little time to focus on yourself.
This new EP follows Asiahn’s 2019 project Love Train 2, the latest installment in a series that garnered acclaim from taste making outlets like Okayplayer, Billboard, and PAPER, the latter of which once wrote that the singer has “a clear and concise grasp on who she is as a musician and where she wants to be.” The Interlude celebrates a new phase for Asiahn, a period of blossoming and fresh growth. It’s an exciting release, both because of its stellar songs and because it reaffirms that she’s always going to have a hunger for exploration. For the South Carolina-raised, Los Angeles-based artist, this five-song set was a conscious effort to broaden her horizons.
“It’s important that as an artist I not only sing about love,” Asiahn says. “There’s more to life than just being in a relationship and falling in and out of love with others, we also have to fall in love with ourselves and discover what we like and don’t like, explore our sexuality, get drunk and have fun! We have to live!”
