INÊS APENAS made her debut at this year’s edition of Festival da Canção, where she competed with “Fim Do Mundo” and finished in 13th place in the Grand Final. Ever since the Final of FdC, Inês has been working hard on her second EP, titled “Leve(mente)”, which she just released.
In this new LP, INÊS APENAS explores new sounds – from R&B, Reggaeton through to Drum&Bass. She worked with producers like Ned Flanger, Joana Rodrigues and Choro, on songs “Shhinfrim“, “Ferida“, whilst she collaborated with Malva (vocalist of the hip-hop duo Redoma) in the song “Tensa“, with Soluna in the song “La Nena” (which is in three languages: Portuguese, Spanish and English), and also with LEFT on the tittle-song of the EP, “Leve(mente)“. Apart from these five, her song from Festival da Canção 2023 – “Fim Do Mundo” is also featured. When talking about her new LP, Inês stated:
Each of these songs show a part of me: there are many layers in them, different styles and feelings, by a girl who’s becoming a woman. I worked every detail in a more mature, confident and lightly way – as I did already in ‘Fim do Mundo’. The music speaks for itself. I bring a clear desire for freedom, in every aspect of it, and an ambition for days that feel more free and focused on good energy. In this EP I say what I think, without any filter or limitation.
“Leve(mente)” is available on streaming platforms (click).
