London based newcomer Hope Tala just dropped her beautiful new track Crazy, the second offering taken from her upcoming major label debut EP Girl Eats Sun. And her soft voice intrigued us right from the start.
Speaking on the track, Hope Tala tells: “Crazy is a fun love song; the type of song I think we all need in these depressing times. The lyric of the chorus has a double meaning – it’s about telling someone they can go crazy and have a good time on the dancefloor, but also that you can tell that they like you and it’s all good because the feelings are reciprocated – they don’t need to hold back, they can go Crazy.”
About her upcoming debut album she says: “At the core of ‘Girl Eats Sun’ is an assertion of confidence and boldness. The title is a paraphrase of ‘if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen’ – as the girl eating the sun I’m daring and fearless. I chose this title because I feel as if the songs and stories on this project are more vivid and inventive than anything I’ve released thus far, and I’ve pushed my sound in different, exciting directions.”
