  • 2 min read

A contemporary soul artist based in Perth, Australia, Lana Burford has recently shared her latest soul-stirring single, the beautifully curated ‘Cocoon’. A single that invites you on a journey of growth and rejuvenation, ‘Cocoon’ seamlessly blends soul melodies, funk-infused rhythms, and jazz harmonies into an instantly captivating new release.

Lana is a contemporary-soul artist that displays a clear admiration for musicians who embody the old and the new. Influenced by artists such as Hiatus Kaiyote, Cleo Sol, Solange and Snoh Aalegra, Lana’s signature vocal style delivers soulful melodies with an angelic tone, complimenting the funky bass-lines and minimalist production.

Her new single is a perfect illustration of this admiration, balancing her own artist sentiments with her inspirations to create a transformative new release. Packed with mellow pads, grooving bass-lines and shuffling drums, ‘Cocoon’ creates the perfect backdrop for Lana’s ethereal vocals and introspective lyrics.

Speaking about the single in her press release, Lana explained, “This tune was written in two halves. The first with a focus on isolation, feeling stuck in a cycle of hopelessness. In the second half, ‘Cocoon’ brightens and expands both lyrically and musically, celebrating the transformation that has taken place as a result of the discomfort.” In perfect form, the track is wonderfully reflective, resonating with a building energy that is tied neatly to the themes of isolation, resilience, and patience. 

An undeniably impressive release, ‘Cocoon’ solidifies Lana’s status as an up-and-coming artist to watch, and proves that she is a talented and original voice in contemporary R&B. For more from Lana, be sure to check out her social media pages below for all the latest news and releases.
