Introducing: Soma Chhaya – Don’t Fear the Snake

Soma Chhaya is a Canadian actress and singer of Indian descent known for her roles such as Goldi Nahir in Degrassi: Next Class and Shauzia in the Oscar nominated film The Breadwinner.

She recently released her new single Don’t Fear the Snake.

The song sounds so good. I like the pop grooves. Besides, the vocals are outstanding. Furthermore, I’m also a fan of the impressive hooks and melodies.

Lyrically, Chhaya delivers. She has a unique writing style.

Don’t Fear the Snake is a song written about the story of creation, Genesis. Though this story is about Adam and Eve, this song is written from the perspective of the snake.

What if the snake was misrepresented in the Bible? What if the snake was trying to elevate eve from her boredom? What if the snake wasn’t evil? What is evil? This song explores it all.

The accompanying music video made by, artist, m00nglasses uses stop motion and collage to convey a gritty, bubblegum pop reimagining of the biblical story.

Chhaya’s creativity has no end. Her art is next level.

The song deserves to be heard. It’s a gem.
