“It’s a break-up song,” says Nadisha Thomas between giggles.

It’s not the end of the world, I told myself,” she says, about this monitor that, regardless of its lyrics, sounds completely happy. “It’s motivational and lays emphasis on the fact that whatever choices you make, you are going to be fine,” she says, including, “It was written four years ago just after a break-up. Well, he’s married now. He’d better not be feeling important,” she laughs.

Back when she wrote it, Nadisha wasn’t certain what to do with the music. “I played it at a couple of gigs. People started liking it. And then Alok Merwin and Carl Fernandes, who have a funk act called Carlok, said they would produce my single,” she says.

It took a yr to return out with the ultimate model launched on May 1. During the method, the workforce (comprising Alok, Carl, guitarist Keba Jeremiah and Toby Joseph, who did the blending and mastering) saved taking breaks, and although that delayed the completion, it actually helped, says Nadisha. After each break, they saved altering a number of issues. “Carlok took the song and made it something else. They brought a different element to it and it’s a new fresh sound,” says the 30-year-old.

Nadisha has plans for a video too. By the time they may get issues began, the lockdown got here into impact. Though, at present, not sure of when the video will come out, Nadisha went forward and launched the music as a result of “I thought people are anyway at home, might as well do it. It is a bit of a bold step,” she says, including, “My musician friends said people need visuals to go with the track.”

I have a lot of songs but sharing it with the world was the first difficult part,” she says.
