WAR - D'IYI

WAR - D'IYI

Whenever D’iyi decides to release some new music, it always has me pumped because he is ridiculously talented, and today he’s back with his latest offering titled “WAR”. 🛡 His sonic style resembles a number of niche styles and in many ways, he has a tendency to somehow, effortlessly blend together different genres into one unique sound, with the instrumentation on this song being reminiscent to his usual lo-fi synths, intimate guitar strums, simple drums and snares that his listeners have known him to utilize. 🎧 ✨ The song is very slow-paced and relaxed, with a beat that goes on to reflect D’iyi’s racing thoughts on particular people and circumstances. ✍🏾 Thematically he covers a breadth of subjects from the struggles we face, online addiction, introversion and more. 💭 And with expressions such as “searching for connection, everything can be so fake in the digital,” it’s clear that this record served as a venting mechanism for the arduous times referenced. 🎙 His cadence never falters or switches up throughout the verses or hooks, but it’s this consistency that truly reminisces in your mind long after the song comes to an end. 💫 The emphasis, over annunciation, and embellishment of words really helps his message come through clear and uncontaminated, leaving no room for vagueness or uncertainty. 💯 The song only lasts for about three minutes, but it just sticks with you long after the track wraps up, as he continues on his role of giving us some of the most masterful, inventive, and impressive songs to ever come out of the underground. 🌟
