TUNE Adriana Spina - Still
The serene new single from Scottish-Italian singer and songwriter, Adriana Spina is released on Friday 4th September on her own Ragged Road label.
A notable departure from Adriana’s signature guitar-driven sound Still has the quality of an enchanting contemporary lullaby. The gentle single showcases her irresistible vocals, which are simply paired with synth and bird song.
Still is the result of a quiet moment of contemplation and promise – Adriana was inspired by the stillness of lockdown at dawn and the sense of hope that comes just before daybreak.
Adriana was also struck by the unique palate of colours in the sky only found during those ‘wee hours’, and this light and shade can be felt throughout the single.
Adriana wrote and recorded Still at home, over the space of a couple of days, using exactly 20 words. Her vocals were recorded at 3am to capture the serenity of that particular time of night and she recorded the bird song from her back garden. The result is spellbinding.
