‘My Name in the Echo’ is the second single from upcoming South African artist C’nky Siwela. At first it seems like a straightforward, upbeat pop-dance tune. However, listen again and there’re hidden depths.
The song is actually about having faith in your own ability, even when people around you are trying to tell you to give up. People have seemingly said the same to Siwela about his music career, but with mainstream sounding radio-friendly pop songs like this he has as good a chance as any independent artist to make an impact.
Steer clear if you’re into dark, brooding indie. but if you sometimes like to simply put your hands in the air and wave them like…. well, you know… then Siwela is an exciting prospect. New album is out in 2016.
