"Ten Missed Calls" embodies the feeling of having million unanswered questions in your head after losing a loved one. The need for answers to these questions and the inner emptiness has become so omnipresent that the protagonist keeps trying to reach the lost person repeatedly – without success. The pop song "Ten Missed Calls", which resulted from a cooperation between Hookepack Mukke and Neiyla, unites the 90s vibe with the current sound of 2022.
When Neiyla was 17 years old she sat down in front of her piano and wrote a song about all the nuisance in the world. "Unthinkable" is intended to encourage to face issues like climate change, poverty, hate and war face on instead of finding excuses. The pop song that climaxes with the help of a gospel choir sung by Pete Simpson should bring hope to its listeners that it is not impossible to make a difference in our world.
"Crazy" is a „feel-good” soul-pop song, holding the key message that it’s okay to step out of line. Crazy talks about loving someone others don’t approve of due to their age, race or sexual orientation or similar reasons. With great ease, the song embodies the strength of love which knows no norms. The song inspires to be more tolerant and openminded, which is especially important in current times.
"Opposites attract“ - but how attractive is a person that’s oppositional within themselves? Someone who is restless but also lazy? Someone who always says the right thing but then does something stupid? Someone who embodies everything you love but also everything you detest? With refreshing ease singer Neiyla sings about someone who is simply “50/50” and asks: Should you stay or leave with the one that keeps you sane but also drives you crazy?
“Losing you” explores the feeling of “not wanting to let go” when losing a person you love and captures the disillusionment of promises now broken that lovers once gave each other. “Losing you” embodies these feelings of emptiness, grief and rage as well as the feeling of hope and commitment to a new beginning.
“Good Thing” talks about being taken for granted by your partner. However the mood of the song is not at all melancholy. In contrast to the expected operates the song as a cheeky and easeful final warning to realise the worth of the partner and stop taking them for granted as “you don’t wanna look back on a good thing you once had”.
