Ashlynn Malia Shares “wheel of fortune – voice memo” Single
Playing LA‘s The Mint with Theo Kandel on 3/31
New EP navigating galaxies Out 3/21 via Jullian Records
Ashlynn Malia, the Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter who first got noticed on TikTok, released her second single “wheel of fortune – voice memo” from her upcoming EP navigating galaxies, out March 21st. The single, in the same fashion as the first track titled “comfortable” that was released last month (read the Chorus.FM, XSNOIZE, and Psychedelic Baby features), is raw and only includes Ashlynn’s haunting vocals accompanied by a single instrument, all to illustrate the initial and unabridged steps of her songwriting process. Connection with her listeners is what Ashlynn is striving for in her upcoming EP, which will be made up of a collection of voice memos, and the first two singles prove its off to beautiful beginnings.
Of her latest single and the new EP, Ashlynn wrote: “I’m learning to accept what’s out of my control, and that every stage of life is temporary and precious in its own right.
What I care about most when it comes to music is connection. I write about connection and I write to connect with people. I think that’s why releasing something as vulnerable as a collection of voice memos appeals to me (and also lowkey scares the shit out of me). If I’m honest about the things that I struggle with or think about, it might make someone who stumbles across my work less alone and maybe even excited that someone else shares the same thoughts they don’t always feel safe enough to talk about.
The whole release strategy of this EP is taking a more personal route. Reaching out to my audience organically through TikToks that aren’t too ‘polished’ or perfect. More tearing down that wall between artist and consumer and inviting the people who give their time to listening to me into my mind and my process.”
And as her EP release looms near, Ashlynn Malia is also opening for Theo Kandel’s Los Angeles show on March 31st at The Mint as part of his spring 2023 tour. Tickets are available here.
