Adelide Takes a Bite Out of Temptation in New Disco-Inspired Track “Witness”

Adelide

In an innovative new release, Adelide, a prominent soul-pop artist from NYC, presents “Witness,” a song that artfully combines the rhythmic essence of 80s disco with a contemporary twist. This soulful track explores the theme of forbidden love and is characterized by lush synths, captivating rhythms, and Adelide’s compelling vocals.

“Witness” reinterprets the timeless tale of temptation within the context of a modern, queer romance. Adelide’s emotive and resonant vocals complement vibrant synths and bass lines inspired by funk, resulting in a nostalgic yet refreshingly unique soundscape. The song’s narrative draws parallels to the Garden of Eden, inviting listeners into a realm where passion and surrender intersect, establishing “Witness” as a poignant anthem for those who embrace love boldly.

The music video, directed by Margot Bennett, serves as a visual complement to the song’s themes. Set in a contemporary Garden of Eden, the video features stunning cinematography and choreography that immerse viewers in a dreamlike world of desire and temptation. Notably, the video includes a memorable scene of Adelide biting into a pear—an ironic twist on the forbidden apple—only to humorously spit it out at the crew’s insistence, injecting a touch of humor into the otherwise sensual visual narrative.

Adelide’s “Witness” offers more than just music; it provides an immersive experience for both the auditory and visual senses. With its infectious rhythm and captivating storyline, this track is positioned to make a significant impact in the soul-pop and disco revival genres.

Azu Yeché stirs a soulful serenity with his new single, “Leave Me Now”

AZU YECHÉ

BritishNigerian artist AZU YECHÉ demonstrates exceptional songwriting and musical talent in his latest single, “Leave Me Now.” This profoundly introspective song masterfully delivers a soul-stirring anthem for anyone who has encountered the heartache of a strained romantic relationship. It was entirely self-written and performed on the guitar, encapsulating the perspective of an individual grappling with a partner’s uncertain commitment.

Yeché’s decision to record his vocals in just one or two takes adds an authentic layer of vulnerability while amplifying the raw emotion of the moment. His collaboration with Jim Lawton in the studio has resulted in a subtle and warm production, allowing the song’s soulful core to shine through. Yeché’s musical style represents a captivating blend of soul, gospel, and African influences reminiscent of artists like Michael Kiwanuka, Lianne La Havas, Jordan Mackampa, and Leon Bridges. The slow-paced percussion and serene acoustic strings establish a contemplative ambiance, harmonizing flawlessly with Yeché’s commanding yet relaxed vocal performance.

Lyrically, “Leave Me Now” lays bare a heartfelt plea for genuine love, underscored by Yeché’s emotive delivery. The repeated lines, “If your lovin’ is ruled by someone else, leave me now, oh leave me now, if your lovin’ ain’t as strong as mine, leave me now, oh leave me now,” poignantly express the desperation and resignation of someone choosing to ultimately embrace the painful decision of separation rather than endure a half-hearted affection. His intimate and unguarded approach will enable the audience to deeply sense every pang of honesty expressed through the song.

Leave Me Now” represents a significant addition to any music collection and is a must-listen for enthusiasts of captivating soul music. Yeché, known for his two-part EP, Soul Afrikanah (part one and part two), which delved into his dual identity using folk and soul genres, showcases yet another dimension of his diverse artistry with this single. This further cements his prominent status in the realm of contemporary soul music.
