Move to Berlin and write a few songs about it – that’s what most people do. But no one does it quite like Neeraja Narayanasamy. Her 2020 EP »everythingiseverything« offered breezy, cloudy music that its creator would most likely categorise as alternative soul. This means she can open up new worlds with just her voice, accompanied by an acoustic guitar and groovy downtempo beats as a foundation for exploring topics such as winter depression, the concept of monogamy or the question of how to find fulfilment in this world. If that sounds too vague for you, dig a little into your pop-cultural memory, and maybe you’ll come across a Lauryn Hill song whose title NAARI borrowed for the EP. And then for sure you’ll have a better idea how to classify Narayanasamy: different from most, like the best.
