Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter, Miss Lia has unveiled her new single, “Animal Type”, which captures the carnal charge around setting sights on who you want. The single follows previous releases, “Dangerous”, “Loney”, and “Summersault”.
Written in Miss Lia’s unique fashion — a confident, inspired, spontaneous type of lyricism — the song’s origins are rooted in the pop-R&B artist’s penchant for emotionally-driven songwriting that pulls on both past experiences and in-the-moment feelings.
“For ‘Animal Type,’ I was getting ready to go out, and started ‘feeling myself’ — confident and sexy — like an empowered woman,” she recalls. “The vibe just came to me… I was watching myself in the mirror and started singing the melody of the intro. I came up with the first verse and chorus at that moment, and left them unchanged.”
Looking to capture the classic ‘I need you’ feeling, Miss Lia uses “Animal Type” to relate with those who find themselves suddenly overtaken by lust’s ‘I’ve got to have you’ impulse. While the song feels sensuous and provocative upon first listen, it’s Lia’s confidence and empowered spirit intertwined with each line that seeks to seduce the listener further.
