Good songs for a good cause – that’s something I can get behind. “Spellbinding” by Nadia Vaeh is something I can get behind. It’s a powerful single about breaking free of toxic relationships and learning to find and love yourself after it all. Proceeds from the release are being donated to Peace Over Violence, a Los-Angeles organization that helps people get back on their feet after breaking free of toxic relationships.
Nadia’s love of music and singing began at the age of two and was nurtured by her parents who placed her in a traveling youth choir when she was in middle school. Her mother was a poet who passed on her love of words, which later fueled Nadia’s talent as a lyricist. Nadia’s life took an unexpected turn at the age of 17 when she lost her mother to suicide. She went down a path of self-sabotage and destruction and use relationships and partying to ignore her pain. When she finally began again with artistry, she was a shell of a person and looking to anyone and anything for answers to deal with her heartbreak. Now, she uses songwriting as personal healing and also as a platform to help others heal and make waves in social matters.
“Spellbinding” is an electro-pop single that carries an empowering and triumphant message. Its bold bassline is hypnotic and dare I say, spellbinding. It provides an electrifying bassline for Nadia’s rich vocals. She maintains a steady pace and balanced tone, even as she digs into her experiences with unhealthy relationships, unforgiving patterns, and unseemly heartbreak. With velvety and pronounced vocals carrying a strength that is reminiscent of Amy Lee of Evanescence, Nadia commands control that keeps listeners engaged and receptive of the deeper message beneath her words.
Of this single, Nadia explains, “I have always found myself in codependent relationships. This song was drawn from the place of really wanting to break free from the “love drug” and learning to focus on loving myself and learning how to have healthy relationships with healthy boundaries.” It’s clear from the lyrics that she is taking her journey of self-healing and self-appreciation very seriously. And with captivating music like this, it’s clear she’s also committed to helping her listeners heal through shared experiences.
