Que sera sera…

There's a gentleness to NAKAYA's new song, "Something More." Inspired by the early stages of a romance, NAKAYA isn't so much falling head over heels as she is falling into place. "At the time, it was new and exciting but also quite scary to realize I was finding myself vulnerable in this new state," she says. "I wanted to be with this person, but I was too afraid to tell them how I felt."

Instead of going the melancholic route too many songs of longing go, NAKAYA enlisted JAIE, the producer she worked with to bring last summer's "Jump" to life. The result is a near-four-minutes of tranquil bliss. A muted island vibe keeps the mood up, giving ample room for NAKAYA's desire to come out in full, soulful force. It's content, breezy, and refreshingly comforting.
