Malena ~ ‘If It Goes’
Debut track ‘Should I Try’
Argentinian born Malena Zavala honours her South American roots on new single ‘If It Goes’.
The song is an ode to her mothers’ character and acts as a reminder that it’s an intrinsic part of her own.
“The song connects me to my South American roots through my mothers’ Latino feminine character which she passed down to me. That fire is one of my only perceptions of my roots and I had a definite fear of losing that growing up in a different country/ in a different culture. It wouldn’t be me if I lost it.”
‘If It Goes’ follows debut single ‘Should I Try’, a floaty pensive exploration of the fear of failure but with the acceptance that whatever will be will be.
Malena is an artist, producer and film maker. Influenced by guitar players such as Blake Mills and Venezuelan American singer- songwriter / visual artist Devendra Banhart as well as the psychedelic and dreamy sounds of Tame Impala, Beach House, Malena explores a free thinking and forgiving approach to her work.
