Here and Now
Aysanabee's music is always powerful, but his newest EP is especially emotionally gutting. Described as an exploration of “Indigenous love and loss in the modern era,” the album features raw, honest lyrics—yet this is definitely uplifting music, the type of finger-tapping tunes with groovy, rhythmic beats that make you wanna bop your head and move around. While the first song on the EP, “Waste My Time,” echoes the same fantastic vibes as his most popular hit “Nomads”—both perfect songs for your next main character moment—the second song on Here and Now, “Letting Go,” has a unique, almost jazzy beat to it that reminded me how talented this emerging superstar is. This is the type of healing music that always hits home, no matter the status of your love life.
