Low Leaf weaves her magic again on the first track to be taken from her forthcoming album AKASHAALAY which is due on April 29th via Fresh Selects. Speaking about the song Low Leaf imparted her passionate message:
“‘Rise Up’ is a vibratory message of restoration and empowerment to the collective Filipino psyche. In an effort to de-colonize, cleanse, and heal the wounds of history and recent natural disasters–the time is ripe now, more than ever, for the Filipino spirit to be reborn in full form. As the divine generation, our ancestors that have lived and died for us to co-create our culture through music and art are speaking through us, and guiding our hearts to a new awakening. So, the people of the world, how we gonna rise up?”
We love music that’s hard to pin down and defies genres, avoiding the usual musical cliches, with Low Leaf you get all of that and a deeply felt message about her homeland. It is that perfect mix of being accessible as well as being a bit different at the same time.
