Nasa Woods is a name in popular music that you are bound to hear in the near future. Unfortunately for the London based singer, a number of other musical projects collapsed, forcing him to pursue a solo career which is proving to find him the success his music deserves.
There’s no doubt you are all thinking: what does ‘Alitheia’ mean? Nasa has revealed that the mysterious and cryptic title ‘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.’
The urban tone of Nasa’s voice fits in perfectly with the current state of chart-topping popular music all over the world, but there is much more to his sound that makes him distinctive within such a crowded genre.
The distorted, yet subtle pulse of the electric guitar underneath the vocals at the beginning of the track offers something different and also demonstrates Nasa’s experimental outlook.
As you might expect for a track entitled ‘truth’, the lyrics are honest and original, diverging cleverly from the usual content found in chart music. They recall memories of the night before and what might have been said, as well as the problems that are so often encountered when intoxicated.
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.
