Melbourne’s R&B songstress, Priya Francis, comes in with a delicate sensuality of reflective enlightenment and growth on her latest single “Same Wine,” which follows her last big release in 2016. Acting as her second single of the year and gearing towards her forthcoming EP slated for release later in 2019, “Same Wine” is a gradual sentiment of untamed emotions and hesitant thoughts unveiled at the sip of some wine.
“‘Same Wine’ is a song that really demands a no-nonsense response. It’s about the hesitance a lot of us show when it comes to talking about ourselves, opening up, asking for help and voicing our emotions,” states Francis.
Cascading against warm strings, the initial flow is a calming sedative after a long day. Francis’ creamy, light, and overall fragile vocals initiate the self-reflective conversation. Lounging in a sea-breeze aroma, waterfall vocal runs, and a contemporary R&B core, “Same Wine” and its double entendres not only speak on the usual “blame the alcohol” response, but a universal fear that we all share on opening up that is truly refreshing to hear in a young artist.
There’s an ounce of relief upon each listen that seems to speak to Francis’ truthful songwriting that is adored through her minimalistic construction. A swift follow-up from “Tell Me” it is expected that Francis’ full body of work will be a very personal and centered collection that I anticipate its arrival.
