Vaeda Black just dropped her 3rd single Drunken Tears and it’s so good. I like the uplifting vibes. Besides, the vocals are stunning. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the subtle harmonies and solid hooks.
On the single, Vaeda says: Drunken Tears was one of the first songs I wrote when I was learning how to play the piano about 4 years ago. It is a story song about luring someone into a bar, getting completely trashed, and fantasizing about murdering them. I’ve always viewed this piece like a siren song. I’m saying things that are terrifying but they’re delivered inside a simple and alluring melody.
Whenever I perform this song with my band I tell the audience “I just want to let you guys know I’m not going to viciously murder you after my set. I am okay mentally, I promise.” It’s one of those songs where I feel like I need to make people feel safe before I sing the lyrics staring directly at them. A big part of my belief around music is that you have to separate the artist from the art. I want people to see every part of me, and Drunken Tears lets me show people my darker side.
Vaeda’s music is something else. Drunken Tears has all the elements of a true masterpiece. Start streaming it as soon as possible!
