R E L looks forward to the next chapter of her musical endeavor, releasing new music for a three-part visual album, entitled EVOCA-POP™. Upcoming single ‘Consciousness’, which is a collaboration with Robot Koch, is inspired by the discovery of self-awakening.

Sonically, ‘Consciousness’ features enriching layers of soundscapes, seductive vocals and ethereal harmonies. R E L has succeeded in creating music which encourages listeners to think and feel. “Consciousness is light, realizing it and letting it shine through”, she confides.
