It is with great pleasure that I get to write about Neethusha, a singer-songwriter from Kerala, South India, who’s new single ‘Why Did I Lose You’ tugs gently on the heartstrings right from the get go. No stranger to hardship, Neethusha fought against her conservative surroundings to pursue a career in music, her lifelong passion, pushed by an enduring voice in her head telling her not to back down.
This is not her first experience of the music industry however as Neethusa learnt her craft singing in the band Steroegum in her hometown on Kerala, and was featured on Kappa TV. Her achievements don’t stop there though as she also performed at the Facebook India Show and Femina Style Diva in 2015, garnering her a lot of solid experience and exposure.
With flavours of Coldplay and Savage Garden, ‘Why Did I Lose You’ is a heartfelt ballad about heartbreak and self reconciliation that offers a nuanced and poetic look into what it is to lose someone you love. Her vocal delivery is flawless, reminiscent of greats like Shania Twain and Celine Dion and sung with a rawness that is seldom heard these days in a world of overproduced, plastic pop music. Neethusa is definitely one to watch and her captivating, culturally diverse sound should most definitely stand the test of time!
