Hong Kong singer-songwriter XTIE drops soaring electro-pop offering “Cloud 9,” featuring her honeyed vocals layered over intricate melodies. The indie act taps into her love for candid story-telling and soft soundscapes on the hopeful production. Taking us deep into her psyche into a relatable contemplation on passion, the track has been crafted carefully to be thought-provoking yet a mood booster.
Inspired by a dream she had, the euphoric pop melody talks about how hard it can be to have faith in ourselves as we set onto a path to fulfilling our hopes and dreams. Infused with positivity yet gently teasing the loneliness of losing yourself in the clouds when we pursue our passion, while still fearing failure, the track acts as a realistic yet encouraging message on taking the leap on chasing your dreams.
Sonically led by her signature jazz-tinged vocals and distinct ear-worm beats, the self-produced rising star effortlessly creates a swirling world of pop framed by youthful good vibes and mature introspections. Brimming with warmth she hopes to share with her listeners, “Cloud 9” asks us to “give our dream a chance,” armed with confidence in ourselves and with an anthemic instrumental to boot.
Gaining attention for recent single “frenemy,” XTIE, who has gained a reputation for her work in K-pop as well as the global pop music scene, continues to sets herself as up a promising talent in the industry with her flair for transportive productions.
