At 18 years of age, L.A.-based singer-songwriter Lena Fayre has already amassed an impressive and well-received collection of moody pop ballads—and a few million YouTube views. “Colors of Leaving,” the latest track she’s shared from her forthcoming EP Is There Only One? is her most involved production yet: It’s an atmospheric, synth-heavy slow burn built on stuttering FKA twigs-esque drums and Fayre’s ethereal vocals.
“Lyrically ‘Colors of Leaving’ lives in a place between both narrative and poetic,” Fayre says of the song. “Sonically the song pushes and pulls in intensity. Looks back on a love gone wrong; the story isn’t over but there is a sense of finality anyway.”
Stream “Colors Of Leaving” right here. Fayre will self-release Is There Only One? on July 24.
