Seraya’s single gives us something that is currently lacking in our time of real danger and despair – PEACE.
She has a way of gently introducing us to her songs and then drawing us in fully until subconsciously that tune is part of the self. How Seraya does it I do not know.
The single is hard to define genre wise, but I’d like to call it electro new folk; It has a message to send (as per folk songs) and yet is right up to date with the use of electronic music neatly arranged almost symphonically.
I cannot and will not compare Seraya to any other singer/songwriter (dead or alive) as it would do her a disservice. Instead let us just follow Seraya on her musical journey as she progresses through each new song and accompany her too.
Seraya has this uncanny way of writing lyrics that can be interpreted personally and universally and at times she lets the two run side by side
The song emanates positivity from a topic of possible despair; where is peace as we need it now worldwide and personally too. “PEACE LIFT US OUT OF THE DARK”.
