Eszra is a Belgian singer-songwriter who’s been influencing the pop and pop-folk music space since 2021 with her singles – Vitamin D, Oopsie Daisy, Quest to Mars and her latest single, California in 2022.

In this new single, the artist explores the dream of moving to California as a home away from home. The artist presents the song as a hopeful love letter to California with endearing lyrics and a beachy rhythm. The guitar work and the earnest vocals softens the edges of the song and affords it with the breeziness of country music. The pop details scattered throughout the song lends it with the energy and excitement of youth.

The glassy vocals and harmonies are used wonderfully to add character to the song, personalize and make unique, a common dream. The listener cannot help but root for the protagonist and her dream. The artist’s winning portrayal of a hopeful, wide-eyed day dreamer is reminiscent of Taylor Swift’s earlier work.

Selected as “Lokale Helden’ (Local Hero) of Ghent by Gabriel Rios and having been the supporting act for Stef Kamil Carlens and Anton Walgrave, the artist shows a lot of promise and potential. California is a catchy, spirited and light-hearted song for everyone and makes for a great listen.
