Like many of us, I’m finding out about WAJI for the first time today and it’s safe to say my introduction to the music went very well. The two-track project dubbed “City of Stars/Dahlia” tasks itself with delivering a mix of sounds with a broad appeal, a task it executes spectacularly.
For me, “Dahlia” was the standout track. The song manages to create the space it needs to breathe and flourish; a quite transformative experience. I enjoyed how the lyrics seemed to linger after they’ve been uttered; as if floating skywards and becoming part of the atmosphere the chords and drums are creating. It seems somewhat limiting to describe “Dahlia” as just a love song but let’s say I decide to be lazy and lump it in that category, then I must also add that WAJI has mastered the art of the love song.
Dahlia is one lucky person. I look forward to hearing more from WAJI.
