Following on from her beguiling debut ‘Crosby’, Fiction Records’ newest signing, 23 year old British-American Azusena today releases the follow up, ‘Better’. The track, produced by Dan Carey, sees Azusena’s distinctive and captivating vocals weaving in and out of dense, absorbing electronica. As with ‘Crosby’, the track has a hypnotic quality, linked to Azusena’s belief in the power of the Mantra, although where ‘Crosby’ lyrically tackled the theme of the ‘untouchable muse’, ‘Better’ is about deep rooted insecurities and how they are affected by relationships with those around you, as Azusena explains;
“Better is a deep attachment to someone very close to you because of the way they understand you and your behaviour but all the insecurities you have are rooted from them anyway. “
Themes of colour and the energies they stimulate run throughout Azusena’s creative output. As with ‘Crosby’ she painted the artwork for the track herself using deep blues with hints of red provide the perfect aesthetic accompaniment to the track
"Better was one of the songs I painted the template to while listening to the song. Those were the colours that came to me. The words felt like an ocean scene".
