Album Review – Theia – E.P. (Warner Music)
Review by Geoff Jenke
Theia is an up-and-coming artist from New Zealand who has just released a self titled mini album (or E.P.). She made her debut with the electro-pop, R’n’B track Silver Second, which is the lead track on this release.
Theia (real name Em-Haley Walker) means Titaness in Greek mythology. Theia the artist brings brightness to modern music. The catchy Roam has warmth that is infectious and is a must song for anyone who has ‘roamed” a long way from home, feeling a little homesick. Also with over six million streams on Spotify, she must be doing something right.
The EP is a sort of mini best of/catch up as songs Silver Second, Roam and Champagne Supernova (No not the Oasis song) have previously been released but it is great to have them on one CD.
Supernova Champagne is a soaring anthem that shows a high level of sophistication, a level that Theia retains on the whole EP.
Theia is also a hypothesized planet that in early Solar System history is said to have collided 4.5 billion years ago with the Earth, with the suggestion that the result was the creation of the moon.
Theia the singer is on track to collide with singers like Lorde to create a whole new superstar.
