Whilst I may not be able to pass comment on 90% of the lyricism of the track given my inability to translate them, for me, Lina Sleibi’s latest track Over the Rainbow was still deeply evocative thanks to the female vocalists captivatingly soaring vocal ability and range. Also, I’m pretty sure everyone knows the words to Judy Garland’s 1939 song from the Wizard of Oz by now.
Lina’s take on Over the Rainbow may loosely fit into the Pop genre, but I can guarantee you that there aren’t many Western artists creating a sound so resounding, pure, visceral and sweet as what Lina Sleibi created with her latest single. The classical components mix with the intercontinental vibe which without any shadow of doubt will make Lina an internationally adored artist. The melody and harmony which is brought to life in the track, goes way beyond contemporary standards.
