Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Rula Savira. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked her compositional style.
I immediately liked the music of this talented artist.
The thing that struck me the most is the voice of Rula Savira, a magical vocal timbre, and a hypnotic interpretation. A way of singing that makes you believe in the words of the lyrics.
The production of the whole Ep and of the single is very professional.
The chord progression of these songs is solid and mature and you stay glued to the speakers from the first to the last second.
A rock that sometimes seems more pop but that has also energetic twists that make it very pleasant to listen to.
Honestly, I haven’t found any flaws in this Ep, all the songs are well written and thought out.
An artist to keep under the radar as she produces beautiful music. Go and listen to her it’s worth it!
Ghost Of You is the single included in the Villans Ep by Rula Savira Out Now!
Indonesian independent soloist, Rula Savira has released a new EP, “VILLAINS”. This project tells a story about the many villains in our lives. “Basically, ‘Prison Break’ is about seeing ourselves as the villain, while ‘Villain’ is about being portrayed as a villain by others. So, perhaps ‘Ghost of You’ is about perceiving others (or memories) as the villain, haha,” Rula said.
The record opens and ends with poems inspired by Game of Thrones and her personal feelings. This was driven by her obsession with the show at some point in her life, and “The Least Honorable Man” is basically her ode to Jaime Lannister.
Later, Taylor Swift released Folklore that became her turning point in dipping her toes into poetry and songwriting. Meanwhile, the ‘dark’ vibe in the album was inspired by the emo and pop-punk scenes. With various influences, this EP produces sonically diverse genres, ranging from pop rock, pop punk, electronic pop and spoken word.
In this EP, Rula introduced her brand new self-written single “Ghost of You,” produced, mixed & mastered by Nadif Firza. The song transitioned from acoustic folk à la Taylor Swift’s Folklore into a track that resembles late 2000s pop punk. “I’m so happy that the production turned out this way. He [Nadif Firza] did an awesome job. We also experimented a lot on this track. From the genre transitions, gang vocals in the outro, and I even tried to do a post-hardcore scream even though I suck at it, hahaha,” Rula described.
