After critical acclaim for her debut album Angel I’m Frightened, Raia Was has released a new single titled “What It Feels Like.” The track showcases Raia‘s unique ability to push the boundaries of genre while exploring the intricacies of identity.
In “What It Feels Like,” Raia fearlessly embraces her artistic vision, weaving together a tapestry of haunting melodies, hypnotic rhythms, and ethereal vocals. The song draws the listener into a world of introspection and emotional catharsis, exploring the complexities of love, loss, and the human experience.
Raia wrote the song about the experience of speaking one’s truth, and the moment of uncertainty that follows. She seeks to give sound to the nuances of everyday life, the feelings and sensations that often go unspoken but shape our experiences nonetheless.
