Down the Lane of Love Memories
Shalisa Taylor presents us with “Street”, a song to remember lost love. With its mid-tempo and lively harmonies, it evokes the nostalgia of shared places. Minimal acoustic pop with mellow vocals, inspired by artists like Norah Jones.
“A personal experience inspired this song.”, Taylor tells us. “I was walking around an area I hadn’t been to in a while, and all old memories blossomed up.”
While the narrator remembers, she also wonders. With soft vocal harmonies, the chorus seems to ask questions that remain unanswered. Who did what, and what led the relationship to its end?
The upbeat pop mood of the song might remind you of James Arthur’s “Say You Won’t Let Go”. But this isn’t a love declaration – It’s rather a reflection of the past.
“Street” was produced by Fabian Santacruz, Taylor’s steady collaborator for several years. She sent the recordings from Stockholm, and Santacruz crafted the sound in Barcelona.
Taylor’s recent singles earned her a feature on renowned Swedish blog Popmuzik and Portuguese outlet Caesar Live N Loud, among others.
In 2017, her song “Fight” debuted on Swedish radio station P3. The single featured on their program for unsigned talents for several weeks. This captured the attention of Gothenburg-based Rexius Records, which has been her label ever since.
Shalisa Taylor is currently preparing for the release of “Street” in June. The song is the last of a series of singles with a similar aesthetic approach.
