Eva Celia Kala Senja Single ReviewEva Celia Shows More Exploration on Jazz with “Kala Senja”

“Kala Senja” marks another chapter in Eva Celia‘s musical career as the musician took a different approach in her music, unlike her previous endeavors. After debuting with a full-length album “And So It Begins” in 2016, Eva Celia presents a light take on jazz with various collaborations including a track with her longtime idol, Snarky Puppy. Previously, “A Long Way” proves her versatility as a musician by bringing soulful beats and pop R&B infused melodies. “Kala Senja” further cements Eva Celia’s status as a musician since it shows another progress like her singing in Indonesian and more exploration in the musical side. As the piano starts the song beautifully, Eva’s poetic lyrics permeate our hearts and ears as she describes the feeling of longing when the sun sets. For the lyric department, fellow singer Matthew Sayerz lent his hand by providing some writings. If you listen closely to the track, you will catch some odd instruments that are rarely used in jazz tracks. There is the sound of a pedal steel guitar that gives a hint of country music influence. As well as keytar played by Indra Lesmana that makes “Kala Senja” sounds very meditative and soothing.Eva Celia Kala Senja Single Review

What we love from this era of Eva Celia is she dares to come out of her comfort zone. She also added the help from John Mayer’s longtime drummer, Aaron Sterling to fill the drum department on this song. With the encouragement and helps from her closest ones and musician relatives, it is safe to say that we put a pretty high expectation for her sophomore album. “Kala Senja” makes us want to be grateful for the life that enables us to witness sunrise and sunset each day. Simultaneously, the single was also released with the lyrics video showcasing Eva Celia casually playing with the waves, beach, and tons of sunlight.
