Oyinda: “The Devil’s Gonna Keep Me”
Nigerian-born, London-raised, New York-based singer/songwriter Oyinda is getting ready to release her debut EP. Her latest release, “The Devil’s Gonna Keep Me,” presents a darker side of Oyinda’s songwriting, but still captures her beautiful, soulful melodies and powerful vocals. The track is built around rolling piano chords, both repetitive and hypnotic. Pulsating bass and clanking industrial percussion add a haunting atmosphere. As the song pushes forward, lush strings enter, making her tortured vocals feel cinematic and grandiose. “The Devil’s Gonna Keep Me” shows Oyinda’s skill for creating unique and memorable pop songs.
There’s no official release date for her EP so far, but you can buy “The Devil’s Gonna Keep Me” on iTunes now.
