The lead single Naked relies on deep bass and funky guitar riffs. offering an emotive, infectious sound. Staal’s soulful vocals, coupled with the captivating sound of his music make it easily appealing to a wide audience.

Talking about his new single as well as the rest of the EP, he says: Naked is a song that is probably the most relevant to where I am in my life right now. It’s an upbeat, cheeky way of me saying “I just wanna have fun right now and that’s ok”. It was probably the easiest and simplest song to make yet it’s probably my favorite on the project.

My latest body of tunes! Battle Scars & Broken Hearts is a pretty genre-fluid collection of songs that I’ve been writing over the past few years and covers the parts of my romantic experiences that I wanted to share with people. I wanted to capture how it feels to fall for someone as well as lose and miss that person and all the crazy things that go on inside your head throughout. Having written, recorded, and produced the entire project myself, it’s a body of work super close to my heart that I hope people will be able to connect with as soon as they hear it.”

Battle Scars & Broken Hearts is out now.
