It’s the latest single from her forthcoming album..
Ophelia’s Eden, also known as Ciara Gayer, has released “Love Trip,” an infectious single that pays tribute to her musical influences such as Quincy Jones and George Gershwin. The track takes its time to build up to an open and vulnerable state, emulating a feeling of warmth and wonderment. Its deliberate pacing and structure lead to a bridge section that submerges itself into a state of bliss, without any need for tension. The single showcases Gayer’s brassy set of jazz pipes, somewhere between Erykah Badu and Lou Rhodes. Her vocals are centred in the moody single, which also features orchestral instruments that build and shine after the bridge.
“Love Trip” is an indication of the sort of range that many young and serious artists are reluctant to express. Gayer’s upcoming album, “Boundary Road,” promises to be a reflection of her journey of travelling and living in her camper-van and exploring mental health, freeing ourselves from beliefs that incarcerate our flow. Overall, “Love Trip” is a delightful, infectious single that showcases Gayer’s musical talent and range.
