Malaysian-born, Brisbane-based songstress, May Lyn, lacerates the landscape of R&B with her own edgy signature in her new single “Touch Base” – a glinting track that is built on aerated synths that buoys you to an introspective space. May Lyn’s lyrical delivery is the catch of the song – it flows with a cathartic rush that pumps your brain with self-reflection, but at the same time the melody suspends you in a weird chill trance. It’s a rare balance, but one that radiates the message of “Touch Base.” The melodic midtempo creates an intimate soundscape that invites listeners to digest all the thoughts and emotional barriers May Lyn had to face in pursuing something that was deemed un-okay – something that everyone can relate. Stream below:

“Touch Base” is from May Lyn’s upcoming second EP Vesssels, which will be released on July 31st. Her EP has already made buzz in the blogsphere and artist community after May Lyn shared the first single, “Escape.” If you happen to be in Brisbane on August, see her live:
