Earlier this year, London via New York artist Oyinda’s struck up on the scene with her masterful ‘Rush Of You’ debut. Then followed a debut gig at Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival no less, and her slick, genre-fusing ability’s been given another jolt with new single ‘What Still Remains’.
Oyinda’s latest effort proves that strings don’t just have to play a bit-part in adding drama to sweeping songwriting. Beyond synth sobs and fatal chimes, there’s a simple but affecting string line breaking out in the background.
This being her second track to date, the Nigerian singer’s already proving a dab hand at making emotionally-led pop sound like something vital, not just an exercise in expression.
