Back in April of last year I posted an article on Treasured Lies, a track that Black Needle Noise released featuring lyrics and vocals by Zialand (you can find it HERE if you missed it). It would go on to be the lead track on the Black Needle Noise Lost in Reflections singles collection. Prepare to be impressed as I introduce you to her latest single, Landslide!
The first thing you’re going to notice the second you start Landslide is a synth hook that is a solid gold winner. It had my head bouncing to the beat before the vocals even kicked in. Once Zialand adds her voice the mix, Landslide really takes off. There’s a subtle sophistication that breathes its way through the lyrics as well. The song tells the story of a person who has been burned, practically died inside, and has come out the other side of a bad relationship. There’s a lot of inspiration to be found here, especially since it’s a universal experience that transcends age, race, religion, or culture. There are very few storytellers in music anymore…music is made to order with no soul and lyrics are heaped on with no real content or meaning. Zialand is a refreshing light who is writing real words that have real meaning.
You can find Landslide wherever you enjoy your digital music. You can find it on Soundcloud, Spotify, iTunes, and Tidal. Don’t forget to check out her website over at zialand.net for all the latest goings on in the world of Zialand! Hope you enjoy the track as much as I do!
