We can find pleasure in sad music & at the same time, in drama and tragedy. Edza’s debut single ‘Out of the Blue’ – Out Now!- is a perfect example of this. A mixture of piano, drums and vocals, ‘Out of the Blue’ explores the bittersweet reality of love.
Inspired by both personal and external experiences, ‘Out of the Blue’ at its core is based on the bittersweet reality of love. Whether it is being blind-sided or the false reality that you perceive when you are infatuated with someone.
Right from the start, we are introduced to a delicate and mournful piano, that serves as the skeleton for the entire track. This is then followed by melodic drums, adding an extra layer to the track. We are then finally introduced to Edza’s deep and rich vocals, an element that gradually builds throughout the song until its peak, before fully experiencing the insane power and emotion that Edza’s voice can deliver.
Zimbabwean born and British raised, Edza takes her musical influences from a wide range of artists such as Etta James, Nina Simone, Sam Smith, and Adele.
Having grown up in a small town, Edza understood the importance of originality. As someone who embraces being different, Edza is always striving to be bold, authentic, and transparent with her music. Using it as an expressive outlet, her songs are expressed with such honesty, rawness and emotion.
‘Out of the Blue’ is the debut single from Edza, so let it take you on a journey, and introduction to what she has to offer.
