EXCLUSIVE: Pop Songstress, Maya Lazaro, Premieres Dreamy Synth Single "Premonition"
Hailing from Queens, NY, up-and-coming pop artist Maya Lazaro is no stranger to music. She's spent years supporting artists and providing backing vocals, but last year she took a big step to become a solo singer. Armed with a major arsenal of 80s influences and a one-of-a-kind voice, Maya is ready to share her popstar tendencies with the world. Today, we are happy to exclusively premiere her sophomore single, "Premonition."
"Premonition" begins with a bubbling synth arrangement with layers of sonic detail that fizz and sizzle before Maya's impassioned vocals come in. The lyrics are bittersweet and minimalist, focused mainly on dreamy hooks like "we gotta move on, we gotta move along" amid a frenzy of 80s-esque dance club beats. Maya's strong voice leads the track through a series of dizzying synth rhythms as percussion pounds beneath the main instrumental line and sweeps of sparkling electro gems zip around the lyrics. On "Premonition," Maya Lazaro offers a throwback to dark, sultry 80s dance anthems that mesmerize you. The fact that Maya can make it modern at the same time is a testament to the meticulous and thoughtful musician she is becoming.
