Paula Jivén – What Are You Hungry For? (Spotify)

“The minimalist of the sound, in which, every sound element in its place, the Dream Pop rhythm section fascinates with its airy atmosphere, and the vocals take off our solar system. The sound is very high quality, and the main thing is the positive and correct atmosphere, which in the aggregate is awakening exclusively positive emotions!”

“Минималистичность звучания, в котором каждый звуковой элемент на своём месте, ритм-секция Dream Pop очаровывает своей воздушностью, а вокал уносит за пределы нашей солнечной системы. Звук очень качественный, а главное позитивная и правильная атмосфера, что в совокупности пробуждает исключительно положительные эмоции!”

Paula Jivén makes spellbindingly original pop music, each song sparked from her radiant imagination. At just 17-years-old, she’s already cultivated a truly singular voice as an artist, one that defies all expectations in favor of following her most playful and daring instincts.

October 1st saw the release of her debut single “What Are You Hungry For?”.

Paula Jivén about the track:

“WAYHF? is a song about self-sabotage and self-doubt, but also covering growth and self-love. I wrote it to a close friend who was going through a personal crisis. I wanted to bring comfort and love to her distress, give her a sense of peace but also reflect on the big questions, if you see what I mean? That's where the question comes in. What Are You Hungry For? What brings meaning and joy, and - you name it - to your life? That's the question that I want to ask you. Because I want to know! <3"
