“What are you afraid of?” That’s the sample echoing within ‘Running,’ a beautiful debut ballad from West London singer/songwriter Abi Ocia.

At first listen, the piano buildup and soft vocals may remind you of Little Dragon’s opening salvo, ‘Twice.’ The lyrics are also reflective and internal. Telling the blog Pigeons and Airplanes, Ocia said:

“I wanted to explore an inner dialog with myself, following a journey of seeking out something greater than what you are used to, even if it means purging yourself of things you hold dear.”

According to her Facebook page, this is the first of many new tracks to come.
