Emerging Perth jazz pop artist Rcadia has released the second single and video clip from her upcoming album Broken but Free. Why is a smoky nu-jazz track that explores the choices we make in the face of temptation, our basic instincts and natural attractions. The video is centred around a piano bar scene reminiscent of a carefree night out with all the trappings of tempting opportunities.
It’s been an interesting journey to the stage and studio for Rcadia, who says having moved from India to Australia at the age of nine “allowed my passion to grow and develop and to follow my dream. My love of singing started at an early age and my passion for soul, funk, blues and old-school R&B grew from listening to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Etta James, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Adele, Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones.” All of those elements can be found in Why, but Rcadia’s unique voice and is still the strongest thing you take from the track which was captured by leading Australian producer Rob Shaker from Shake Down Studios.
Rcadia’s Why is out now. It is the second single released off forthcoming album Broken but Free, coming out in October 2018.
