14 Jan y.azz releases new single ‘Trouble’
Portuguese singer-songwriter Mariana Prista aka y.azz just released ‘Trouble’, the second single from her debut solo EP ‘Heartbreak Mixtapes’, scheduled for February.
Based on a real-life love letter, ‘Trouble’ is a song about self-sabotage and missed opportunities. In Mariana’s voice and in the song’s slow and intimate beat, we find the emotional distress of someone who looks at life in retrospect and realizes everything that she could have been and didn’t get to be.
“‘Trouble’ is the most sincere song I’ve ever written. It represents a whole world of missed opportunities and everything that could have been. Everything about it exudes this kind of nostalgia.”y.azz
‘Trouble’ is the second act of a story that started with the release of ‘Love Language’, y.azz’s solo debut, which already amassed more than 7,500 views on Youtube. The song was produced by YANAGUI (Gui Salgueiro from the Portuguese band The Black Mamba). The video was directed by João Hortêncio and artistic direction by y.azz and Pilar do Rio.
Mariana Prista aka y.azz‘s first steps in music were taken with the collaborative project y.azz x b-mywingz. The duo stood out with a win at the EDP Live Bands 2019 festival, an achievement that took them to the stages of the NOS Alive (Lisbon) and Mad Cool (Madrid) festivals in the same year. Their debut album, ‘Cycles’ (Sony), released in 2021, has captured the public’s attention and gathered the best reviews, with some of their singles being included in various lists of Best Music of 2021. After the great success of the duo, Mariana has now decided to explore new possibilities with a new solo project. ‘Heartbreak Mixtapes’, its first EP, can be heard on the 11th of February.
