About "Astronaut"

Genre: Indie Pop

Oleyada is looking to embark on a romantic expedition beyond the realm of friendship on her 80's inspired indie-pop track, "Astronaut". Infused with vocoders, synths and electric guitar, the song crafts an ethereal sonic universe, allowing Oleyada's cosmic pick up lines to soar. Astronaut was written with Swedish songwriter Sara Ryan and Swedish producer Jay Birch at the 2022 Nordic Bridges song camp in Toronto.

About Oleyada

Oleyada is an indie-pop artist working out of her bedroom studio in Mississauga. Oleyada's music has a retro quality, but is undeniably fresh and unique. Through lush instrumental arrangement and shimmery vocals, Oleyada creates dreamy soundscapes to complement her storytelling. Her lyricism is playful, but also conveys a depth and complexity that keeps the listener engaged. These qualities have made Oleyada a hot commodity in Canadian synch, landing two placements in CBC's 'Strays', CityTV's 'Hudson and Rex', and the immensely popular 'Workin' Moms'. Having collaborated virtually with international producers such as Te Pai, AXTROM, and Joan Alasta and having travelled to Spain and Paris to collaborate in person with other artists, songwriters, and producers, Oleyada continues to expand her musical horizons as she readies herself for her 2024 EP release.
