If you are yet to hear the name Nasa Woods, then you’ll be sure to in the near future. After a number of other musical projects collapsed, Nasa has pursued his solo career with the determination that is sure to find him the success his music merits.
With an intriguing and cryptic title, Nasa has revealed that ‘Alitheia, means truth in greek. We always tend to speak the truth when we’re intoxicated so the song represents a moment of struggle between holding back and being honest with someone you love.’
Whilst Nasa has an urban tone to his voice that fits in perfectly with the current state of chart-topping popular music all over the world, there is much more to his music that sets him apart from the crowd.
The distorted, yet subtle pulse of the electric guitar underneath Nasa’s vocals at the beginning of the track is just one unique element boasted by ‘Alitheia’ which demonstrates his experimental outlook within his genre.
The lyrics are honest and original (refreshing for a pop song these days), as you might expect for a track entitled ‘truth’. They recall memories of the night before and what might have been said, as well as the problems that are so often encountered when under the influence.
Nasa has been compared to the likes of Zayn Malik, Usher and Justin Timberlake, and Justin Bieber fans should make sure they check out Nasa’s cover of ‘Sorry’ over on his Soundcloud.
Overall, ‘Alitheia’ displays a promising and experimental debut from the London based artist that is bound to set him on the path to superstardom.
‘Alitheia’ is out for release 21st October.
