Venus

ayoka

On her debut album Venus, New York-based artist ayoka blends the sensual with the surreal, taking the lights-down, lowkey nature of rhythm and blues an astral step further into an hypnotic dreamscape. Relatable yet eternally complex themes of love and relationships are explored through contemplative and viscerally poetic lines, delivered in unique flow patterns reminiscent of the rawest, most passionate jazz. Lending to the duality present in the lyrics, ayoka's voice is simultaneously soft and strong, expertly utilized as one of many instruments present in this multi-layered nine-track experience that is equal parts old school R&B and experimental soul.
