Japanese-Canadian polymath Saya Gray has shared her new single ‘ANNIE, PICK A FLOWER..(MY HOUSE).
Earlier this year, the singer unveiled the first chapter of her QWERTY project – a collection of seven songs created during a period of emotional upheaval, surveying the effects of a digital world on her personal agency.
‘ANNIE…’ is a spare yet ornate electro-acoustic composition, equal parts spectral and disarming. Of the track, Saya shares: “’ANNIE, PICK A FLOWER.. (MY HOUSE)’ was created during a period I had severe pneumonia, unable to leave my home for weeks. These tracks sonically convey my relationship to technology and the overwhelm and emptiness from lack of substance in relationship, art, and thought stemming from technological advancements.”
