Music Monday: "Time Travel Undone" By SZA

The first single from 22 year old small town suburbanite SZA (pronounced Sosa) is a smokey sultry "mood" piece  (a product of the usual culprits) : an excess of ganja, jumbled thoughts and an empty studio at 4am.

"I was raised on a lot of John Coltrane, Satchmo, Miles Davis, Billy,and Marvin, with an adult obsession of all things Wu-tang. The one thing I've always admired is their ability to paint scenes with their sounds.  When I write I usually let the beat saturate my mood and head space  that determines every scene and set design for any song ,the rest is all secondary."

The songstress  was first noticed in 2010-2011 sharing stages with the likes of Canadian artist Colin Munroe, Asher Roth, and multiple Star Trak artists including Christian Rich. Since then, SZA has released a variety of soulful tidbits, ranging from features on some of your favorite artist's tracks to song-writing and solo cuts. With cosigns from 10deep, Creative Control, Billionaire Boys Club, and more.

Fans wondering why SZA hasn’t dropped a solo project yet should blame the wait on an obsession with perfection and an insatiable desire to fine-tune her creative voice. SZA has toiled for a year to build a sound that synthesizes her sultry voice, creative vision, and contagious style. You can bet that “Time Travel” is just the beginning. Be on the lookout for more visuals and smooth ambient tracks coming sooner than you think.
