Laya Laya is a Vocal Electronic Music duo from London, who have been placing their mark on the music industry since the release of their debut single ‘Vampire’ earlier this year.
Originally connecting in 2017, the pair has brought their artistic talents together to develop their unique fusion of Electronic, R&B, and Pop music.
The duo now releases a pop/future-bass amalgamation with rap and trap influences, titled “Tiger”.
Immediately drawing you in, Tiger starts with a gentle instrumental over a faint bird song that acts as a sonic introduction to the track’s jungle setting – filled with an eclectic blend of Synth and Electronic beats setting the song up for a vibrant and immersive soundscape. Citing her current influences as FKA Twigs and Jessie Ware, Freya’s ethereal vocal melody in the verses reflects the Tiger, enchanting and dangerous.
When the chorus beat drops the track takes on a more urban, high-energy, and tougher dimension with a catchy hook, a diversion from the London duo’s characteristic dreamy, spacey sound. The track culminates in an impressive rap verse by Apple Beats 1 featured ‘trime’ artist St3ph, a former studio mate of the duo, who shows off a skilled 8 bar flow with a machine gun delivery that takes the track to an even higher level.
