Melbourne, Australia-based singer-songwriter Zara Moana started off performing acoustic sets at just 13 years old and learned the ropes across different venues in Melbourne. Coming from a multicultural backdrop, Zara has found a balance between her music and her roots but most of all her songwriting. Her latest single "Faraway Lover" is a mid-tempo acoustic guitar-driven love ballad that sees her penning an open letter to a lover who is miles away.
This latest track opens up with snapping drums, rich guitar plucks layered over soft bass lines and lush harmonies. Moana's work has always focused on the dynamics of life and its intersectionality between relationships. Here, she writes from the view of a woman longing for her lover and wishing for him to be here with her to enjoy the moment. Overall, the record has a bright pop vibe with elements of R&B and her lilting vocals are engaging as well. Definitely recommend this for your summer love playlist.
