Boston-based artist ADVIKA is one of the musicians that started out with music early in life, something that gives such artists the possibility and capability to not only gain experience but also, acquaint themselves with different musical styles and genres and incorporate them into their music when they mature as artists.
Now, ADVIKA is able to express herself as a songwriter, producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, as well as a singer. Starting out as early as four years old with the classical piano she was able to widen her musical interests into jazz, electronic pop, and also Carnatic (South Indian classical) music.
Actually, all those musical elements can be both heard and felt in “Come Back to Earth,” ADVIKA’s latest single release. Instrumentally, she adds some subtle hip-hop/funk beats, while vocally she adds harmonies to add that space touch depicted on the single’s cover.
At the same time, she doesn’t skim on the song’s lyrics either. As she explains it, “The lyrics describe the deep anguish of gradual separation in a relationship that once held a promise, watching them slowly detach themselves from each other. One holds onto the promise and hopes that the other comes back. And when they do decide to come back, it’s too late. There is nothing left anymore…The lost astronaut may appear as the lost love, but it is also a metaphor for the relationship as a whole.”
