An uplifting sonic delight that celebrates the inner strength we find when we allow ourselves to be open and vulnerable, producer and songwriter Tiiva has shared their latest single ‘Collide’. Fresh from remixing tracks by Tiece, Roma and Despicable Zee, Tiiva’s new solo new offering marks a moment of intense personal catharsis.
“‘Collide’ is about the woozy moments where you let yourself be human,” Tiiva explains. “The consuming moments where you’re in the dark and can’t see a way out and the knowing cycle that despite it all, you’re still here. We wear disguises and dress up to keep ourselves feeling strong, every so often you’ll allow it to fall, and be vulnerable. The balance of being strong in a harsh landscape, and still letting yourself be close to people is not something we can easily compartmentalise.”
Pushing through these anxious moments, Tiiva’s soft vocals lilt over fizzing synths and atmospheric beats to create a heady, reassuring slice of electro-pop. “It’s a dangerous game and I’m too tired to fake it” Tiiva gently confesses, as their insecurities blossom into acceptance, forming a lush ambient soundscape for listeners to fall back on in times of uncertainty.
