Kenyan singer Lynne Aswani is here with her debut EP titled “Through My Lens”.

The EP officially dropped on 3rd June 2022 and all the 7 songs are now available on all major streaming platforms.

In her own words – “I decided to release an EP due to the influence of Adele’s album, 30; The way she was vulnerable in her music gave me the confidence to do an EP after previously releasing singles. I had so many songs in my songbook that I felt needed to see the light of day because I know as a musician, I’m a vessel to the world; my music being a mirror of society. I chose the name “Through My Lens” because the music in the EP covers songs from the year 2014 that are my experiences and the experiences of those around me. I felt the need to voice out what I am/was feeling and also what other people fail(ed)/fear(ed) to express.”

Here’s an overview of each song on the EP:

In vain is a description of my journey as an artist since I went professional in it. It also captures the struggles that any human being faces in life whenever they are trying to pursue their dreams or achieve a goal.

Even though is a song that covers struggles one undergoes trying to cover pain out of shame of what outside voices will say. It covers what I failed to express or acknowledge while I was being bullied.

Kaburi voices the stages of grief that come with being hurt by a romantic partner; it speaks on the confusion, pain, agony, healing, cycles of being triggered and affirming oneself that they will bury the hurt and only be left with a mark/scar.

Try to heal voices the emotional rollercoaster of letting go of love due to manipulation that one underwent in a relationship; It seeks to find comprehension and validation in a relationship. Also, it depicts speaking to yourself with the goal of finding healing.

Sitachezwa is an affirmation/reminder that I will not allow anyone to toy with my heart or emotions, to build grey areas with me, invalidate my feelings, issue empty words and project their insecurities; I’m affirming myself too.

Elevate is a song to affirm me, that despite the pain I’ve been through, I’ll rise.

The debut EP ends with a song titled Wherever you are, which is a tribute to our loved ones who have transitioned/died.
