We get a touch of groove with ‘Leave me alone‘, this single plays off with an excellent mix of instrumental and EDM beats that makes it a very fun listen, it will have you vibing and dancing to it. Acoustics take over in the ballad ‘For Your Soul‘, the piano in this song is totally breathtaking, and the vocals take listeners into a musical journey full in emotions and feels.
