Vanda is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released an appealing audiovisual for her “Proud” single, produced by Joel Woods. The video stars Vanda and her wife (Marty) and offers a raw and unapologetic glimpse into their lives.

Vanda – “Proud” music video

“Tell me that you love me. Tell me that you need me when the night is over. And tell me you believe me when I say I’m sorry for all the stupid-crazy-sh*t I put you through. Baby, you been so amazing. Staying while I cry myself into a frenzy. I get so emotional, you hold me ‘til I’m faded. Back into a normal, normal kinda hazy. Sayin’ that I love you kind of lacks the thing I’m thinking.” – lyrics

‘Proud’ tells an endearing tale of a young woman who shares an affectionate relationship with her significant other. Apparently, she’s head-over-heels in love with her companion because she was there for her when no one else was around. Therefore, she’s grateful and thankful for the rare love that they have for each other, which doesn’t come around too often. Later, she proudly tells her companion how amazing it is for them to be together.

‘Proud’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and harmonious melodies. Also, the heartfelt tune possesses moody instrumentation flavored with emotional pop and contemporary R&B elements. Furthermore, “Proud” serves as a wonderful presentation to what listeners can expect to hear from Vanda in the near future as she continues her claim to fame.

“I wanted to write something super authentic to my deepest self, without overthinking anything. I had been reflecting on how much my wife does for myself and for others, and it made me super emotional and filled with pride. Also, I hope people can feel the love poured into it.” – Vanda stated

Vanda is making waves in LA’s bustling independent music scene. In 2019, she opened up her own label – Orchid Records – and racked up hundreds of thousands of streams online via Spotify.
