Collabs should be like this. The sultry vocals and lyrics of UNA MEY, combines to galactic excellence with producer duo MAL CAMINO.
‘Not Yours’ has been mixed to a dance of thoughts and meanings, amplifying the way it was intended; all with pragmatic beats and rhythms, aggregated with pinch of immutable ventures in emotional wrangling of the heart.
Each note consumes the notion, as each word by Una, radically summarizes with each expanse and contraction. The vocalist originally from Vancouver Canada has evolved throughout per single, with pop, electric, and rnb influences visible as the rays of the sun.
‘Not Yours’ is the 2nd single off of the upcoming new collab EP ‘Mey Camino’. And when the song, with its tint of American pop, hiphop, synth, it signifies a big leap into their next volume of offerings to come.
Mentiras, one half of Mal Camino, said: “We landed on a sound that blends the likes of Toro y Moi, Lana Del Rey and Metronomy. It instantly became one of my favorites.”
Una Mey added: “I wanted to write about my experience with club culture. Me dancing and enjoying myself often felt like an unwanted invitation for staring and touching.” In the track, she sings, “from your lips a thousand times, oh the shit you calculate without conviction or reasoning. I feel it against my back, eyes on your prize, knowing that I am your bulls eye.”
All members started working together in earnest through their initial exposure to each other’s body of work. And now come 2019, all the fruits of their vision and labor are born through songs like ‘Not yours’.
Quite a trio.
Quite a sound, indeed.
