London-based singer, songwriter, and self-taught producer Zyra has collaborated with San Diego-based DJ and producer, Sulvida on an electrifying remix of the British musician’s track, “This Ain’t Love.”
You may be familiar with this artist’s voice and that’s probably because she made waves back in 2014 when she appeared on electronic music duo ODESZA’s smash hit, “Say My Name.” Now the multi-talented artist has spent time developing her own sound and has a new solo EP out called ZYRA.
“This Ain’t Love” was released as a single back in February, but Sulvida’s fresh new take on the song infuses it with bursting synths and some uplifting bass drops sprinkled in. Zyra’s angelic voice soars above the spectacular production. Her powerful lyrics call forth her emotions front and center. “Maybe I’ll blame you for telling me the truth and giving me another chance/But this ain’t love,” Zyra confesses that the spark that once was is now lost.
Sulvida’s bright and ebullient percussion-soaked beats drive the rhythm forward. Meanwhile, Zyra carries the weight of the booming melody on her vocals which are another instrument of their own. Gripping from start to finish, “This Ain’t Love” is a finely crafted and impactful EDM banger. We hope to see Zyra and Sulvida collaborate more in the future because when they do, magic fills the air.
