Moneda is proud to present ‘love after life’ by Sayia, to be released on Feb 14th.
Building on her previous release Helping Hand as Arrbutus on Honest Electronics, but also her work as a visual artist, these songs focus and reinvent the running theme of friendship in Sayia’s practice.
Don’t let the playful inversion of Cher’s famous love song fool you. In ‘love after life’ Sayia delivers seven interpersonal songs for everyone to be consumed by and to love through. To love, not just that one other-impossible-to-find-half but love as a process and an action. One during which you unfurl and reshuffle a million times.
Love without the cringe. Instead, love as it permeates everything. The orchid and its bee, the chemical bonds in chocolate, but also the evolutionary bonds between species; and in our humble case: friendships.
This work is literally a labor of love and the direct outcome of such friendship. Triggered by Panayotis’ invitation to freely record over several sessions at Pyrgatory Studios, and his unconditional production support throughout the whole process, led Sayia to perform these seven intoxicating songs. The ΑΓΑΠΩΣΕΑΓΑΠΩΣΕΑΓΑΠΩΣΕ noir mantra sets the stage for delving deeper into the subconscious. By ΕΝ ΤΕΛΕΙΑ and its syncopated drum beat we get lost with Sayia in a vertigo. But it’s not a bed of roses. ΕΛΑ ΝΑ ΣΟΥ ΠΩ, a freeform spoken word provokes our voyeurism and by the end of ΟΝΕΙΡΟ we wake from Sayia’s dream.
Grounded in Cypriot dialect, a rare love specimen, ‘love after life’, goes beyond pop song’s love and offers a rare glimpse of a love yet to come.
