Indie singer awfultune aka Layla Eden is back with a new single “soda” featured along with an official video
The new single “Soda” is an edgy pop-rock song with a modern twist–destroys the narrative of society’s attempt of ‘putting you in a box’ and to conform.
awfultune shares, “I’ve been taking listeners on a rainbow themed journey of my own experience in the LGBTQ+ community as a trans woman/artist, and what that means not only to my fellow peers, but more importantly what it represents to me. With previous releases taking my listeners through the high and low reds of love with ‘lovesick,’ to orange inspired angst of ‘SICK OF U,’ to the then happy hue of yellow with ‘sunflower,’ the latest installment of green, represents self-confidence. The song is all about stepping into your power again and embracing where it will take you. The culmination of this journey will transpire with my album coming in the late spring. The album will be a visual representation of where I started and where I’ve finally gotten to, not just in my music, but in my own self.”
In the video we find the raconteur, songwriter, storyteller and vocalist performing the song while clad in a green and black stripped sweater singing “you walk and talk like you got it figured out / if you can’t make decisions then i’m kicking you out / it’s way too easy to filter you out / so i’m keeping you around! yeah, you’re my bitch now!” It’s a calling beckoning strength and confidence at every level.
Previous projects include “redesign,” “MINE” and her 2019 breakout single “I Met Sarah in the Bathroom” which collectively have landed her over 200 million global streams. It is the first of several new songs to roll out over the next few months leading into awfultune’s debut artist album set for release via AWAL next spring.
