Now based in Los Angeles, singer and producer Vylet says that as a child she took piano and violin lessons – you can hear some of the classical influence on her new single exposed.
Having previously cited the works of Chopin and Rachmaninoff as influences, the track exudes a similar passion for expression emotion though the melody and the rich colours of the arrangement. With her perfectly phrased and heartfelt vocals, there’s a dreamy ambiance to the piece, a simple romantic air that still harbours some dark undertones, perfectly in keeping with the theme of the song.
Vylet had this to say about exposed: “It’s a dream pop song describing a kind of high stakes intimacy where the line is blurred between what’s concealed and what’s revealed. The narrator is presenting a certain version of themselves they think someone else will be comfortable with – yet a part of them is still desiring to be truly seen for who they are. I used glossy, invasive synths to match the bizarre feeling of being aware of such paradoxical emotions but carrying on anyway.”
