R&B music has discovered a precious jewel in ANGE
Ever since Justin Bieber came out with ‘Despacito’, it seems that a lot of mainstream artists have been on this trend of singing a bit in Spanish to spice it all up. However, up-and-coming artist ANGE has always sung in Spanish and now she blends her perfect English into her amazing latest single, ‘Cuando Va A Acabar’ (‘When Will It End’ ).
A personal song, described by ANGE, this track is filled with enchanting beats, lustful vocals and some great catchy hooks. The R&B/ neo-soul song has the magic to bring a different sensation to your spirit. The moody vibe combines Spanish and English, touching on anger with a glimpse of hope.
The concept of ‘Cuando Va A Acabar’ is very powerful. It evokes the frustration of seeing a wrongful situation repeat all over again, and seeing no-one do anything about it. It’s a wakeup call to reverse apathy and to not settle with what’s not right. The inspiration behind this beautiful song is strong, as the single builds a bridge between genres representing ANGE's cross-cultural identity and going deeper into her emotions and what she stands for.
‘‘When I wrote ‘Cuando Va A Acabar’ a lot was happening back home in Spain. I remember jamming some vocals on a beat I had been working on and the melody for the chorus just flowed so quickly. I wanted to write something in Spanish about what I was feeling at the time and I came up with the title ‘Cuando Va A Acabar’, that’s how the song started”, says ANGE.
Raised on her Dad’s eclectic vinyl collection, ANGE began making music in her teens, incorporating influences from Stevie Wonder to Erykah Badu. After moving to Sydney in 2012 she got her hands into production and started experimenting with new beats and sounds, crafting her influences into a sound all her own.
Upon arriving in Sydney to finish University and after many years of performing in the music scene in Barcelona, ANGE quickly fell in love with the local independent music community. Soon she started collaborating with various artists and producers including vocal engineer Simon Cohen (Justin Bieber, Will.i.am) and Universal Music publishing producer, Liam Quinn (Guy Sebastian) as well as gigging regularly through in Sydney, cementing herself in the underground RnB scene.
