Electro-Pop Artist Cuja Releases Powerful Debut EP

Cuja is taking over — with her debut EP, Vol. 1, the LA-based electro-pop artist plants herself firmly in the scene. Over four tracks, she pairs her sweet vocals with unexpected electronica arrangements, resulting in a diverse debut that suggests Cuja will make it to radio someday soon.

Hear what Cuja had to tell us about her debut EP below:

Vol. 1 opens with the dynamic “Maneater,” the quintessential pop track — Cuja’s voice is soft and fluttering at first, sort of floating over a pumping, glittering base, but later, the song bursts into its addictive chorus, proving immediately that songwriting is just another thing to add to Cuja’s long list of talents. It’s such a solid introduction to Cuja because right away, we know that she’s got that radio quality about her. Things are toned down a bit on “New Friends,” kicking off again relatively softly before moving right into pulsing retro-inspired electronica, traveling through different waves of power and color.

Halfway through Vol. 1 finds “Don’t Forget About Me,” a tender power ballad that allows Cuja to test a breathy falsetto over a vibrant soundscape of warbling bass tones, percussive pops, and synth swells. Vol. 1 ends with “Backseat,” a sultry conclusion to a collection that up until now had maintained a peppy pop edge — here, the instrumentation is laced with a sexy kind of pumping darkness and Cuja’s voice is at its best. With her debut EP, Cuja humbly presents a few glittering tracks for our consideration — and now we’re Team Cuja.

Listen to Vol. 1 below and connect with Cuja on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
