Get your tissues and blankets ready as you hear Early Winter because Rehya Stevens will most definitely have you feeling your feels. The track is a slow burn and a personal one at that. Rehya has executed the perfect song that encapsulates a variety of hurt in this release. She has you with her, start to finish.
Going by the name of the song and the themes she fills it with, you’d expect the track to exude coldness. That isn’t the case here at all. Even though she speaks matters of pain and longing, there is a general warmth that surrounds you. You feel it right from the start with the guitar and piano combo and her powerful and gentle vocals make an entrance. She has you breathing with her in all the ups and downs of her voice. The minimal nature of the instrumentals smooths it off with a personal touch. The song is over even before you know it and you are left wondering where the last 4 minutes went. That is how crisp and seamless the production is on the track.
Speaking of crisp and seamless, The Holiday is a film that has stood the testament of time and is still everybody’s favorite holiday film. You can imagine Rehya’s voice filling the screen as you see Cameron Diaz bid farewell to Jude Law. The fact that Rehya has a line “Oh I wish it was December. But no, It’s just early winter.” that is an immaculate reference to the events in the film! Need I say more? Rehya Stevens deserves a whole lot more attention for the quality she brings to the indie music scene. So let’s click on the links attached above and show her the love she deserves.
