You’ve seen the name HALIENE on some of the biggest tracks in dance music — from Saving Light to Rush Over Me to Ave Maria — but with her new solo single “Walk Through Walls” she is stepping out on her own.
With thoughts conveyed through lyrics that come from deep within, the US songstress draws on her own real-world experiences. Bidding to empower and inspire every bit as much as it does spiritually elevate, it’s time to bring the house lights down and the spotlights up as “Walk Through Walls” heads straight for the heart.
“Walk Through Walls” defies electronic music convention, opening with long drawn cello strings, piano and other live classical orchestration. Its cinematic breakbeats swell into more synthesized elements as HALIENE’s voice moves heaven and earth with empowering melodies. You can feel her voice smashing through the strongest of walls.
Ostensibly written from the standpoint of a woman in the music industry, HALIENE clarified a deeper meaning for the track: “As a female vocalist in dance music, I often come face to face with walls. I’m told my solo music should be given to a DJ producer and released as a collab, that I need to fit within the current format to be successful. However, every time I’ve hit a wall in this genre, I have found a way to break through it. I have found people who say YES. My next solo single release is about just that. Walking through walls in every area of our lives. Where you are told you CAN’T, you CAN, if you only believe. Truly it is only our own fear and insecurity holding us back.”
