Emerging NYC-based starlet Ayla D’lyla returns with a sublime slice of dark pop that might well become one of your favourite songs of the week.

Beautifully intense and melancholic, new single ‘To Be a Girl’ looks into the sense of delusion that we can sometimes begin to foster when we are in a relationship.

“‘To Be a Girl’ is a letter to all of the girls who have lost themselves in the midst of a relationship. We often measure happiness by the romance existing, or not existing, in our worlds. Many of us tend to lose ourselves living in this state of fantasy and passion.”

The song marks a phenomenal year for D’lyla, who’s achievements in 2022 alone included critical acclaim from the likes of Wonderland, Paper and V magazines, a debut headline show in New York and over 470k streams on Spotify.
