We hear good flows in these songs from Maia Zakay, whose lyrics focus on the diverse dimensions of human interaction, be they emotional or sensual. Above all, Zakay’s producer/co-creators bring a high level of artistry to these recordings, creating multi-layered soundscapes for her solid, appealing voice to inhabit. Can someone be too nice? That’s the sometimes troubling issue Zakay explores on “2 Nice.” She shifts to a sunnier outlook on “How Lucky,” whose beat has layering and effects that are alluring. Same goes for the sexy comeon, “Rooftop,” a sonically skill-drenched production that perfectly conveys the power of physical attraction. No reason why a label shouldn’t check out this artist.
