Cocoa Sarai Puts Things In “Retrospect” In New Visual

Words from Cocoa Sarai‘s newest visual “Retrospect” reveals that reflection is so much more than simply looking back on what has happened. There is a shifting inside a persons spirit when they are forced to face themselves. When problem solving is internal and they themselves may be the problem. When you realize that you are in a place in your own life that you don’t recognize. “How did I get here?,” she sings.

“Hindsight is 20/20” – It is easier to see a situation for what it really is AFTER it has happened. In other words Growing Pains! “Retrospect” is the first of many music video’s to be released off of Cocoa’s latest album Nostalgia | The Vibey EP; a “Freewrite” as Cocoa calls it due to the fact that she went in the booth and let her heart speak instead of using pen or paper, It feels more like a conversation with self…because it is.

On this record, unlike the vocal power in “Raining In My Room” or the aggression in her single “Wait A Minute,” Sarai finds a way to make us all reminisce in a soft and sultry low register as she asks the question:

“If this is how you treat some that you love, I’d hate to be someone you hate.”

Produced by frequent collaborator V-Notes the duo finds a way to make us face ourselves, no distractions or fillers just pure honest retrospective questions. She also teamed up with director Yvedy of SevenSees Productions to create the visual.

Remember to get your copy of the EP, which is available HERE and other music streaming platforms.

Fly EP: Cocoa Sarai – ‘Nostalgia, The Vibey EP’

cocoa-sarai-nostalgia

NOSTALGIA, The Vibey EP, is the newest release from established Brooklyn Singer/Songwriter, Cocoa Sarai. The talented artist is no stranger to SFPL, as we believe she is the most underrated artist of our generation.

The EP features 9-melodic tracks including lead single “Robots”, created by super producer Rick Hertz.

Cocoa says:

I found myself in a barrage of sleepless nights in the last few months. I met 3am with ease on a regular basis. Structure can kill creativity sometimes. Most of this project was created at 3AM when the world was sleep and my heart couldn’t rest. I turned my Mic on and let it flow. The honest of night allowed me to tap into a very airy, spiritual and vi Vibey place. Feelings and melodies that I couldn’t write down if I tried flowed out of me. My heart was speaking and I let it! Honestly, I just turned off all the lights, loaded up a series of ProTools sessions, walked up to the Microphone and let my thoughts do the talking. It has very therapeutic to say the least.

The project also highlights several amazing producers and artists such as the incredible V-Notes, WOLFGVNG, Marq C and many more.

‘NOSTALGIA, The Vibey EP’, will be sure to appease true Cocoa Sarai fans as well as grab her newer audiences. Trust us, she’s THE TRUTH.
