Honing her skills in songwriting and visual production, UK/Sri-Lankan songwriter SILYLA is an artist with a strong drive, an ambitious sound and clear pathway. "C'est La Vie" is a luscious example of what we can expect from the dynamic artist, coated with sugary vocals, popping bass lines and trap-like drums which differentiates from traditional pop.
The new single expresses her experience and thoughts of being an independent person and knowing what’s good and bad. The track is a modern take on RnB infusing elements of trap & commercial pop throughout. It's a sound we're used to hearing from U.S artists, but rarely explored by U.K artists in the RnB space, who lean towards neo-soul, jazz or electronic influences.
The single is to be released alongside a music video which was co-directed by Silyla, and demonstrates her ambitious drive to express her feelings and draw up her artistic image. Using assistance from a sustainable fashion designer to help curate the music video for C’est La Vie, It is clear to see that she has expressed her attitude and attention towards her carbon footprint as well as her creative attention to detail.
C’est La Vie is out now via 3 Tone Music and will be available to stream everywhere.
