Rising Buenos Aires recording artist MAR1ASOL has just released her new 5-track EP, Different. The project is a true representation of her growth and artistic evolution, showcasing a unique blend of R&B, soul, and pop elements. Remarkably, MAR1ASOL has found her niche by writing and performing in English, her second language.
Different is a collection of songs that explores self-discovery, heartbreak, and empowerment, united through MAR1ASOL’s journey to find a sense of belonging. Throughout the EP, MAR1ASOL explores themes of individuality and self-love, encouraging listeners (and herself) to embrace their unique qualities and celebrate their differences.
Throughout the EP, MAR1ASOL lyrically seeks self-confidence and belief in her identity. This message is especially evident in the first track, city bih where MAR1ASOL sings, “The first time I tried to be cool, papa told me ‘be the best you.’/As I was too shy, liked to hide, never talked, so nobody knew.” The lyrics suggest that MAR1ASOL initially tried to conform to societal norms of being “cool,” but ultimately learned that the most important thing is to be true to oneself.
With tracks like givin u love and nothing back MAR1ASOL explores the pain of heartbreak and the struggle to move on from challenging or fractured relationships. However, she also emphasizes the importance of self-love and acceptance, embracing the idea that to find strength and happiness we must look within, rather than to external forces.
In addition to its powerful themes, and potent songwriting, Different also showcases MAR1ASOL’s impressive vocal range and versatility as an artist. Her smooth and emotive voice has the ability to convey a wide range of emotions, from vulnerability to empowerment. She effortlessly transitions between melodic R&B undertones, smooth pop vocals, and soulful inflections.
From the dreamy, atmospheric sounds of full of traumas to the eclectic, danceable beat of idc, each track on the EP offers something unique and exciting. MAR1ASOL’s vocals soar over each lush soundscape, creating an immersive listening experience that is both haunting and beautiful.
Overall, Different is a clear triumph for MAR1ASOL. With its powerful message and stunning artistry, the EP offers a glimpse into the artist’s personal journey and encourages listeners to embrace their individuality, love themselves, and never give up on their dreams
