Following the success of its lead single “Angel’s Lie“, heavily supported by the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Reprezent Radio and Link Up TV, Jamaican-born British singer, songwriter and producer Adreyn Cash is excited to reveal his highly anticipated debut EP titled Illusions, as premiered via Flaunt Magazine.
The 8-track EP was co-produced by Adreyn Cash, alongside some of the finest UK musicians and beatsmiths, including Nutty P, who has previously worked with Ghetts and Shakka, 169, who’s worked with the likes of Drake and Stormzy, and rising producers Jamal Woon, Shaun Barratt and Linden Berelowitz, with all songs written by Adreyn.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the EP, Adreyn says: “The EP is inspired by love and desire and driven by a need for love and acceptance. I wanted to write a project about the way I saw the world, my hopes and aspirations.”
“All the things I wanted but felt I didn’t have, all the things that were illusive in my life: success, happiness, joy, love & freedom. This Illusions EP was a way for me to break through any illusions, with the hope of actualising these aspirations”.
From opener “Angel’s Lie”, where Adreyn laments the end of a relationship, and the deeply personal “Breathe“, which touches on Adreyn’s battle with depression in 2017, to “Strange Fruit“, about our forever search for unconditional love, and the guitar-driven sensual track “Sweetest Taste“, Illusions takes us on an expansive lyrical and musical journey, which makes for a greatly compelling listen, top to bottom.
