Get your headphones on! TWIST is happy to provide your first listen at your next musical obsession: we're premiering the first stream of singer/songwriter Azra's new EP, Freedom! The artist hopes to inspire listeners with her songs, which are an awesome blend of pop, rock, and dance beats. We asked the artist to take us all track by track through her EP, so we can get a feel for the sound and the stories behind it. Below is what she's sharing exclusively with us!
Track 1. “Just Break Free”:
This song is about breaking free and letting loose everything you have been holding back in your life. It’s about being yourself, not accepting your limitations, and finally breaking free.
Track 2. “Gravity”:
This one is inspired by experiences in my love life. It's about not feeling emotionally fulfilled due to a lover’s absence from my life. I wrote “Gravity” to empower people to stand up for themselves and not to settle when they don’t feel loved.
Track 3. “Right Here”:
"Right Here" was inspired by my love and fascination with trees (yes, trees). This song describes the strength of trees and is a metaphor for overcoming hardships and being resilient.
Track 4. “Shine”:
This song was inspired after the devastating Orlando Shootings in July of 2016. It’s my view on society’s flaws, and it is a rally for individualism and pride.
Track 5. “Right Here (Piano Version)”:
This song version was added to the EP by chance. It was originally just a piano melody created for sketch vocals after writing the song. However after recording it, I felt that this version adds a more intimate experience for listeners with its raw emotion and vulnerability.
