Ashlynn Malia may not be a household name yet, but that’s bound to change. With a career as an award-winning contemporary dancer, she’s built up a sizable social media following from dance routines and acoustic covers alone. The LA-based influencer has songwriting credentials and she’s dabbled in electronic music, though she’s ready to prove she’s here to stay on “Desperate.”
Produced by Peach Fumes, one-half of rising alt-electronic duo LMBO, “Desperate” envelops captivating lyrical and melodic elements, displaying Malia’s steady refinement of her vocal and songwriting ability. Peach Fumes adds pressing production elements to give the arrangement a bold, yet pleasant feel, including heavy synths, piano riffs, and pitched vocal motifs.
