Manila artist Lesha joins Heavy Rotation this week and we catch up with her, how she’s been since the typhoons, and her latest track Sad Songs. ICYMI here’s the complete interview:
Luckily during the typhoon, Lesha says that her area wasn’t as affected like her friends who experienced flooding. “I’m praying for them and everyone who’s capable of donating to donate to the drives and help these people out because they really need it.”
We switch gears and dive into her new song, Sad Songs which is about a personal struggle she experienced. Going through negativity and noise, she needed an outlet. “I wrote this in a point of view as if I was talking to my anxiety.” Lesha wants her music to resonate with people going through any situation. Sad Songs is part of her upcoming EP releasing next year with another single releasing next month. The EP features more upbeat songs that matches her bubbly personality with a dark visual twist.
