Maio released his newest single titled “Siempre Ayer”. A highly fruitful and textured record that’s perfect to pass time throughout the day by listening to a colorful yet simple and contextual single. I was a big fan of the instrumental beat. If you really focused on the backtrack, it had various of multi-elemental sounds to create a nice diverse single. With these unique sound effects, alongside your classic drum kick, they create the base and foundation for the song. You hear these deep sounding synthesizers that’s similar to the sound of a bass guitar. With orchestral and classical instrumental music slightly playing in the background, Maio was able to deliver us the soul and sensual behind “Siempre Ayer”. Besides the exotic-like backtrack, Maio has a voice articulation quite unique from most. It’s like he sings his words in cursive lettering so the pronunciation of certain words sounds to be more tropical. His voice has a soft-like texture that surrounds the stylistic approach of delivering it. “Siempre Ayer” just brings nothing but a relaxing aura and vibe around me. It attracts me to peace and serenity while secluding yourself from the outside world and into the dream-like single.
