With clubland’s obligations in the rearview,VASSYfloors it down a cathartic highway of self-discovery on her ambitious new album, Supreme.
Eleven to weapon of festival euphoria, VASSY’s voice now unveils its depth and nuance. It whispers confessions at times and unleashes inner-lion belters at others, but consistently warbles with the same unfiltered vulnerability behind the music of her illustrious career.
Gone are the familiar anthemic beats, replaced by a smoldering tapestry of genres—tender ballads that ache, reggaetón slow-burners that simmer and introspective pop that bristles with soul. Meanwhile, the album’s lyricism explores the elusive pursuit of happiness in 2024, a time when disillusionment seems inescapable with each dystopian headline.
Creative strangulation has become an albatross for many singer-songwriters in the dance music space, but VASSY’s frustration has fueled a fire. Supreme cements her as not just a voice for hire, but as a formidable artist coming into her own through sonic risk-taking and raw self-expression.
“I missed the freedom in the studio to be more versatile and create songs with no pressure to fit a certain format… it’s fun expressing my voice through various genres and styles of music,” VASSY said in a press release. “I find it invigorating. I just wanted to get back to my roots to remind myself where I started musically and how that translated to where I am now in my career.”
