Producer and multi-instrumentalist NASAYA teams up with singer-songwriter MARO for the release of their sweet summer single, "TEMPO," via ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective.
The well-rounded electronic crossover artist NASAYA has been enthralled and inspired by sounds like jazz, dance music, pop, and classic rock since before he can remember. After graduating from Berklee College of Music with classmate MARO, the two have become close friends and even closer collaborators, currently bringing us into the uplifting sounds of their latest single.
Expanding on the single, "TEMPO," both artists are excited and eager to bring listeners into the lush electro-fusion for fans of dance music, r&b, and alt-soul.
"TEMPO is a good first glimpse of the world NASAYA and I are starting to create. It regards time and its spiral sensation, which we then print by doing a play with words on a repetitive, nostalgic beat," states MARO.
Listening to "TEMPO," NASAYA opens the song with his bright and pulsating electronic drum breaks, sweet-sounding synths, and ghostly background vocals. Once the song's uplifting and tropical atmosphere is established, MARO makes her brilliant vocal appearance and stops us dead in our tracks with her soothing vocal filters and layered arrangements. This song truly stands out as one of a kind, as MARO's breathy vocal stylings overtop of NASAYA's calming electro sonics bring us a bounty of flavors and feelings from beginning to end.
As NASAYA continues encouraging us to groove away with his song's tender and delicate sonics, we can't help but feel artistic similarities to acts like RÜFÜS DU SOL through each ethereal, magnetic, and lush tone. Closing the song with help from MARO's daydreamy vocals, we're truly left in a trance with each stimulating aspect of this delicious single.
Find "TEMPO" on all digital streaming platforms, and be sure to stay up to date with NASAYA and MARO as they continue making waves across the vast electronic music scene.
