sydhartha Takes a Pro-Women Stand on new single "Ayaw"


Upcoming singer-songwriter sydhartha breaks out from the mold with the release of her new single, "Ayaw."

Known for her intricate folk-pop sketches and disarming vocals, the 17-year-old artist  takes a step back from her confessional musings to affirm her stand against sexual harassment and abuse towards women in general.

The empowering number, which sydhartha wrote as a reminder for people to respect boundaries, delivers an inspiring message that puts into light the importance of consent. "It is undeniable that sexual harassment continues to be a prevalent issue that we face today," sydhartha points out. "I feel for the victims of catcalling and rape, and understand how hard it is to talk about their experience. As a musician who some people look up to, I know I have to use my voice in behalf of all the victims and survivors. This inspired me to write Ayaw."


A well-conceived effort that embraces her newfound strength as a singer-songwriter, "Ayaw" suggests lyrical confidence and maturity that's beyond her age. Production-wise, it's her most sonically adventurous release to date: an excursion to a more bluesy territory, a more organic vibe that gives her personality the spunk and edge it needs.

"Ayaw" is sydhartha's third single, and her first official release under Sony Music Philippines. The song is now available on streaming and download platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes store and Deezer.
