A beautiful introduction to Solis' delightfully poignant style, 'Sunday' presents an authentic portrait of the frustrations of youth.
Irish-born singer and songwriter Solis has shared her brand new, bittersweet single 'Sunday'.
The latest in a string of newly released tracks, 'Sunday' contrasts the joyfully buoyant instrumentals with heart-breaking lyrics such as "I wasn’t falling in love I’m only falling behind. I wasn’t losing the game I’m only losing my mind."
The song manages to capture that all-too-familiar feeling of being lost in life, struggling to move forwards but still holding out hope that things will get better.
"Sunday is about always focussing on the future in the hopes that tomorrow might be better," Solis explains. "The lyrics describe suppression in vocalising how you feel, while also feeling overwhelmed by the concept of having a time limit or age expectation for certain life experiences."
"The chorus is more of recognition of this behaviour and holds excitement for a free lifestyle. It explains how sometimes life expectations can actually make you take steps backwards, rather than progressing forward if they’re not true to how you feel."
Taking inspiration from the likes of Kate Bush and Jeff Buckley, the Manchester-based singer has crafted her own unique sound - infusing light-hearted instrumentals with her melancholic charm.
After releasing her debut single 'Jigsaw' last year, Solis has been hard at work on her debut album Priestess. Earlier this year the singer released her second single 'Be Together', alongside a captivatingly vintage music video.
The rising star has supported a number of high-profile artists, including Blossoms, Inhaler, Fuzzy Sun, and Phoebe Green; while also taking the stage at festivals such as Kendal Calling, Liverpool Sound City, Neighbourhood, Dot to Dot and Skeleton Coast.
