Falana release second EP, “Rising”

Published

on

Alternative fast-rising artiste, Falana, the Nigerian Canadian, release her second EP with the title of “Rising”, an exhibition of her brilliant pen game, soft spoken vocal chords, smooth sailing on LoFi productions and a journey of self-discovery and romantic love, presenting her stories to the average youth or Gen-Z if you’d call them that. Sir Dauda is the only featured singer, appearing on the second song, “Energy”.

Guitar strings, piano keys and mellow drumbeats are the go-to production instruments on Rising, fluidly blending them to create a “by the ocean” breezy cool vibe. On the third track, “Sweet Adeola” might be where Falana fully shows her musical prowess, telling the tale of a young Nigerian lady who has dreams of leaving the very populated Lagos state of Nigeria to chase her dreams and goals in the USA.

Most of the tracks contain electric production; Falana resurrecting retro ’90s vibes on Rising. Afrobeat is sought after on the gracious track “Joy” which sees her counting her blessings despite the challenges, living life without stress.

Gradually the instrumentation gains pace, giving room for a more lively mood and of course, dancing, as the most sought after Amapiano sound is blended with the production; Blxckie woukd eventually come on, singing a little, before spitting some bars in his native mother tongue.

“By Your Side” is produced by Tumisho. Listen:
