Theia’s new single ‘Candy’ is an unapologetic and carefree celebration of individuality; a blast of pure energy that sees the Kiwi alt-pop artist breaking new ground.
“‘Candy' is about that moment when you stop caring what others think of you. It’s about letting go and forging your own path; not following others, and the power and the freedom that comes from just being yourself,” says Theia, whose real name is Em-Haley Walker.
Pulsating with bass throughout; a melody that seamlessly swings from grit to gloss; and packed with piercing one-liners, Theia once again reveals herself to be a songwriter who is unafraid to push boundaries.
‘Candy’ saw Theia return to Golden Age Studio in Auckland with pop producing extraordinaire Josh Fountain, who co-wrote and produced much of Theia’s 2017 debut EP, including her smash hit ‘Roam’.
The Christchurch-born singer was nominated for three awards at the 2017 NZ Music Awards. ‘Candy’ follows on from her recent singles ‘Bye Bye’ and ‘Bad Idea’, and all three songs will be included on her second EP due for release in 2019.
