i made the bold declaration that the west coast has the vibes on lock a while ago on the site. every time someone tries to offer a rebuttal, some newness drops from the left coast and further validates my stance. this week, the world received the beautiful ep from washington singer, malia and the west won yet again.
the ep was produced by the internet and i think we’re all sold on the fact that matt martians and syd tha kid do no wrong. on top of the great production, malia’s vooooooice! i listened to the ep in the dark with my windows open last night and i was blissed out to the max! the self-titled ep is the perfect wind down to a day. malia is awesome about emoting with her voice. most people use intense runs or straight up screaming to get a mood across, but malia only needed cadence and slight vocal inflections to make me float away. i may be biased because she has that warm-whiskey voice i’m always blabbing about, but check out the flawlessness for yourselves.
editor’s note: peep some of malia’s cover songs here.
