For her latest release Bruneian singer-songwriter and producer Aisyah reworked her absorbing contemporary RnB pop track, ‘Slow Down’; in doing so, she ironically made us fall even more in love with the single.
The original release was a stunning feat of RnB pop which showcased Aisyah’s harmonic vocals against Pisces Kid’s irresistibly smooth vocal timbre as the two vocalists contended with romantic hesitancy. The remix introduces female vocalist, Zalelo, who acts as the proverbial devil on the shoulder, leading the narrative into one which mimics the conflict that is often fought when making romantic decisions.
While many artists use their tracks to boast how head over heels in love they are, Aisyah takes a more meditative approach to affection. Her hesitancy draws realism into the release but it never detracts from the affection.
It’s a stunning track that has left us assured that big things await Aisyah as she takes a step back from the film music industry, where she worked for Netflix, Marvel and Disney and became the first Bruneian to break into the American film industry.
Slow Down (Remix) officially released on April 30th. You will be able to check it out for yourselves via Spotify.
