Jersey-born, Carolina-raised R&B singer/songwriter Asiahn returns today with a new single and visual “Get Away.” Fluttering harps and serpentine bass-lines set the tone for the song’s welcome escapism, as she dreams of better days in the arms of a lover.
“Get Away” offers simple pleasures in both Asiahn’s beckoning lyrics and the meditative production. “The Inspiration for the song came from the frustration with what’s going on in the world today and wanting to get away to just exist. In my mind I wanted to create a song that felt like the experience of being free. “ Asiahn states. When speaking on conceptualizing the visual, Asiahn continues “We’re over sexualized, overused, and most of the time unrealistic in what we look like. I wanted to show a goddess like depiction of two females in love. Not overly sexual, but sensual, powerful & feminine. The concept circles around the belief that beautiful things can grow in the most unexpected places.”
This new track follows Asiahn’s self-assured single “Gucci Frames” and her 2019 project Love Train 2, the latest installment in a series that once led Okayplayer to call her “a rare jewel in an industry full of fool’s gold.” “Get Away” is the fruit of a new phase for Asiahn that’s seen her focusing on her growth as a person and an artist. If this single is any indication, you’ll want to stop whatever you’re doing when her forthcoming EP arrives.
