With “Sunbird”, Belgian artist PSY’AVIAH reveals the second single from his forthcoming “Bittersweet” album that seems to be heading towards intimate pop electronica realms with an up-tempo edge.
For this quite autobiographical song revealing the extreme addictive side of passion and devotion, Yves Schelpe once again found in Oliviya Nicole (professional singer in the UK and finalist of “The Voice”) the best fitting fragile and naïve voice for the perfect match: her distinct voice shines through these highly emotional Moog bass & synth arrangements, and beautifully merges with the warmth of Polina Faustova’s live cello parts.
With this blissful sounding “Sunbird”, Yves Schelpe demonstrates once again how PSY’AVIAH keeps exploring different genres and incorporating them into his very own distinctive signature sound while proving that synth pop / indie pop can not only be catchy and versatile, but can also still carry meaningful messages through intelligent lyrics speaking to your heart and soul… And the video clip shot for this song perfectly depicts it through the performance of a dancer aiming at perfection and eventually burning her wings under the red sun…
Throughout this 11-track EP, “Sunbird” gets bathed in multi-coloured sonic flavours each time placing this catchy moody song in different contexts ranging from the ultimate and vulnerable “stripped edit” with cello, Wurlitzer piano and Ben Van de Cruys’ guitars to stunning dancefloor House mixes by James Beachen and 11GRAMS, through a more 80’s synthwave “retro club edit”, and other trance versions by OMNIKS and RESTRICTION 9, or breakbeat dubstep mix by DECKOS.
