PRESS RELEASE

Self-produced singer, songwriter, and sonic storyteller, Uliya, released their new single, "Medicine," today on the Spring equinox, 3/20/18, wherever music is available. Medicine is their first single in series of singles releasing over the next year. Medicine is a self-portrait of a young, queer South Asian artist navigating relationships and life in a big city. 

“There's a lot of pressure to keep things on the surface and easy; it can be hard to be vulnerable,” says Uliya. “I think of ’Medicine’ as being in conversation with Raleigh Ritchie's ‘Stay Inside.’ His portrayal of mental health is inspiring in its honesty and rawness. Drawing from Ritchie’s inspiration, in my new single I explore how mental health struggles can  show up in my own life and experience.”

“I hope the songs I write can have an impact and that people feel something real,” says Uliya. “I don't think a song needs to be happy and upbeat to be cathartic. Many people especially those who experience a lot of external distress have to hold in a lot, and are not provided the space or the moment to reflect, feel, meditate and process. My hope is my music can help create that space.”

Come be healed by Uliya’s cathartic, metamorphic and meditative soundscapes.

LYRICS

One drop, one drop will send me over
One drop will send me over
One drop will send me over
At night, I look over my shoulder
I look over my shoulder
I look over my shoulder
Hold tight, hold tight and just be bolder
Hold tight and just be bolder
Hold tight and just be bolder
They say it gets better when you're older
It gets better when you're older
It gets better when you're older

I can't sleep the tired away
I unravel my thoughts all day
I can't leave my guard down, no way

Drown me in your medicine
I'm drowning in this hell again
Drown me in your medicine
I'm drowning in this hell again

Stay home and heed your inner warning
Heed your inner warning
Heed your inner warning
The world will look different in the morning
Different in the morning
Different in the morning

I can't sleep the tired away
I unravel my thoughts all day
I can't leave my guard down, no way

Drown me in your medicine
I'm drowning in this hell again
