Introducing: AYU – Striking Matches


The talented AYU has released last Friday her new single Striking Matches, a brilliant piece of music. I really like the unique melodies which showcase creativity. Besides, AYU her vocals are sublime and know to create new musical roads. Furthermore, I am also a big fan of the powerful chorus!

The story behind the track is just like the sound very impressive. AYU says about it, ”Striking Matches is reflecting on a relationship which doesn’t feel right (anymore). It is a story about confusion and misunderstanding caused through a lack of communication. Also it is a call to action: ‚Say what you wanna / say what you wanna say / say what you wanna do before we are drowning in flames‘. » If the relationship is falling apart in the end is left open to interpretation.”


Striking Matches has a sound that you never heard before, so make sure to stream it as soon as possible and feel free to sing out loud with AYU!
