Sixsense – “AYANNA”


“AYANNA” enthralls with a nocturnal, atmospheric yearning — exemplary of the standout pop sound coming via London-based artist Sixsense. Latin R&B, Afrobeat, and pop inspirations blend cohesively alongside a strong vocal mystique, cautioning “thought I told you not to fall in love with me.” Originally from Santiago de Chile, Sixsense melds his eclectic stylistic prowess with personal background — a mixture of Jewish-South American and Australian heritage — for an intimate, engrossing sound.

Ghostly vocal reverb and plucky instrumentation complement a smooth vocal entrancement, lyrically awakening with commiserations of emotional suffering: “It’s late, I’m feeling sick, I’m pouring liquor for the pain.” The bilingual central hook follows with melodic immersion, consuming further in a second half where the rhythmic additions become more prominent. “AYANNA” is an atmospheric, soulful success that showcases Sixsense’s memorable vocal work, atmospheric prowess, and moody production.
