First Listen: Malia lays it all bare on "Naked"

(January 7, 2017) Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter Malia first hit the waves with her 2015 single “Satisfaction.” She’s been working on her debut EP ever since, and it is now a reality with Late Bloomer.

She says, “I truly am at a point now where I am embracing my journey at every step of the way. Because when I first started doing music, I would get frustrated. I would think, ‘Aw I wish I could play this already and I wish I was doing these things already.’ But, it’s not about that. It’s about every day appreciating where you are, what you have, and being grateful. I’ve started to embrace that more in my [new] mentality. So, I feel good, I feel calm, and along the way I’ll just appreciate each day.”

Malia has a nice, sparsely arranged sound and a keen sense of melody, which she amply shows on her new single, “Naked.” It is a song about which she tells us, “I wrote the song about laying it all bare, as if to not hide anything and reveal everything.”

We’re digging the song and all we’ve heard from her so far. So check out “Naked,” below. It is our newest SoulTracks First Listen.
