Essex brothers, Rayowa, explore tropical house beats across sophomore EP ‘Believe’.
Rayowa are back, three years after their debut, with their well-anticipated sophomore EP, ‘Believe.’ A concoction of jazzy synths and disco beats, this EP sees Rayowa bring immaculate vibes, through a track-list of addictive tunes.
Having taken the festival season by storm, including collaborations with acclaimed artists Nile Rodgers, CHIC and Diana Ross – it’s fair to say Rayowa have had quite the good start into 2022. Following the storming success of their 2020 debut EP ‘Keepin’ Me Under,’ – which saw them circulate a humongous three million streams – Rayowa continue to prove the sky’s the limit with their infectious song-writing skills.
Speaking about the new EP Rayowa tell: “The four tunes on this EP collectively encompass the message of keeping the faith, regardless of how difficult the circumstances you find yourself in are, and so it felt natural for the EP to be named ‘Believe.’” Adding: “Musically, we wanted to push beyond the boundaries of disco we explored on our first EP and showcase a wider range of influences including RnB, Soul and Funk. Our aim was to create something that sounds fresh and modern but also feels as familiar and as timeless as your favourite worn in record.”
A melting-pot of goodness, this December sees Rayowa celebrate the release of ‘Believe’, with a headline show at Chats Palace, London.
