New York City multimedia artist and songwriter Isa Reyes releases her exquisite new EP today, and with it comes intimate new single ‘Bels’. The song sees Isa attempting to make peace with her childhood through a beautiful blend of sultry alt-R&B and dream pop.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the EP (which is also called ‘BELS’), she says:
“Thematically, ‘BELS’ takes you on a journey of vulnerability, nostalgia, love, belonging, grief, depression, heritage, generational trauma, and coming to terms with the past. Each song is like a location and time in my life that I’m reflecting on or paying homage to. It is also an embodiment of processing for me. ‘BELS’ is the culmination of that journey, one that we are all on, one of the processes of self-growth and acceptance. For me, each track is a step into that process.”
