Amsterdam-based singer YOUANDI has shared her beautiful new single "all time" ahead of her highly anticipated upcoming album, isaidtome. With the artists’ music reflecting her diverse heritage from South America to Europe, YOUANDI blends different cultures, sounds and influences into captivating and soulful experiences through her music. This latest offering gives listeners a taste of the intoxicating soundscapes we can expect from the new project, melting R&B, Neo-Soul and Trip-hop together for an alluring adventure through her sonic space.
"all time" is a prime example of YOUANDI’s cinematic and experimental approach to her music. It’s vibrant yet understated, playful yet considered, emotive yet distant creating a mystical atmosphere that keeps the listener enchanted. Swelling synths and sub heavy bass create a pillow bed for silky, whispery reverb-tinted lead vocals, capturing a hypnotic beauty from start to finish. The track balances its entrancing harmonies and instrumentation with catchy melodies that mesmerise you into the musical space.
Speaking about the track, YOUANDI shares: “When the masculine and feminine energies cooperate, and we align in this collab of forces wonderful things can happen. One example is synchronicity and I’m in awe of it every single time again. During a playful state of creation, these moments feel like they crystalize time, mind, matter, and sound. This can be incredibly healing for the spirit and body. This is exactly why the cute little voice in my head reminds me to create and express myself, without worrying about time and space. In fact, this is what “all time" speaks about – alignment and the magic of allowing creativity to flow freely. As the track says: ‘all time, all day and all night i’ve got, oh all time, it’s alright, all light we’ve got’”
Since her debut in 2018 with Dutch producer Chalé, YOUANDI has released multiple singles, gaining a following in the lead up to her debut full-length release, which is set to drop this May. If recent singles are anything to go by, audiences should be ready for an expertly blended and bewitching project that will continue to build on the glimpse we’ve seen of this sonic landscape.
