Remi Xia is an artist from Vancouver, Canada who has been steadily building a discography of soulful, poetic R&B alternative music. Her latest single “La Vida Loca” is a moody head-bop, released with her debut music video, shot by beautifully by Chris Ajtony.
“La Vida Loca” contains smoky, vibrant production that keeps the listener re-winding, centred around lush keys drifting atop addictive percussion and rich bass. As the instrumental builds steadily into a smooth, hypnotic groove, Xia lays down a series of refreshing, engaging melodies that draw the listener further into the song’s layered sound. She caps it off with a sharply-crafted and memorable chorus as well, providing the listener with ear-candy throughout.
The video, shot by Chris Ajtony, captures the track’s moody feel through its usage of nocturnal shots and vibrant props such as fire and flowers. With its subdued purple and blue hues and smoky look, the visual does well to enhance the track’s dark yet smooth feel.
The latest from Vancouver’s Remi Xia, “La Vida Loca” continues her run of emotive alternative R&B releases, and features her debut music video, making for a cohesive and engaging offering overall.
