Ilaye is a rising soulful singer that uses a jazzy alternative ballad approach to tell beautiful love stories through her music. She has been here for a while and she just dropped her EP titled ‘Pneuma’. Metaphors is the third song on the EP and was produced by Tejiri. Metaphors is a slow alternative ballad where Ilaye literally uses metaphors to describe how she feels.
Metaphors is a dreamy lullaby like song for adults that want to define their affection and admiration to someone.
Metaphors started with a dreamy legato string melody followed by Ilaye's trance-like vocals that takes you to dream land. This is a case of soft instrumentals meeting a laid back vocal performance.Lyrically speaking, Metaphors will make you feel like Cupid's arrow was shot directly at you. The beat was perfect, the vocals were soothing and the overall song was clear and audible.
