Yuna // Live Your Life
I heard this song after Yasmin posted it on her twitter a while ago, and meant to download it and put it up here. Well that completely escaped my mind, so thank you to anonymous for bringing this amazing track back to my mind.
Signed onto popular online music website FADER’s label, Yuna is a Malaysian artist who seemingly glides the boundaries of folk, pop and R&B-Soul. “Live Your Life” is the current single from the 24 year old, who seems to be gaining a little more interest with the Pharrell produced number. Against a soft string and drum arrangement, Yuna’s voice sounds calm but assertive, as she delivers a message of power and taking control of your life.
“Live Your Life” has a great subtlety about it, with a sound that reminds me of UK singer Delilah meets Sade. It’s a smooth track, with a top class production that gives it some sort of understated quality. It’s nice to see Pharrell producing something so good these days, especially with an artist who’s so unknown. Hopefully good things will come of Yuna this year, but while you’re waiting grab a free download of “Live Your Life” here.
