Ha1ey is an electronic pop artist from Miami, USA whose innovative and refreshing pop anthem Seltzer caught my ear.

The track starts with a cinematic opening that sets it apart from other pop songs. The instrumentals are textured and minimal. The bass beats are heavy and piano comes and goes. What remains constant are Haley’s expressive vocals. Through her extended metaphor she raises the flag for anyone who has every felt they had to make themselves small to fit in.

A pioneer of her own genre creation – persona pop – Ha1ey is an exciting prospect. I think she’s got all she needs to go far.
