Brisbane’s Wafia has today shared her brand new, 6-track EP, VIII, via Future Classic.
The much anticipated release comes ahead of a stacked US tour, and is a dreamy concoction of tracks that effortlessly blend from one into the next, creating a well rounded, personal project.
Stand out tracks from the EP such as ‘Bodies’ and ‘One Love’ display the versatility that Wafia possesses with her music style, a style that encapsulates electronica with soul and builds this beautiful fusion in between.
Speaking on the release, Wafia says: “Writing this EP, I got really obsessed with the realisation that nothing I ever make will be tangible. Even my voice, the only instrument I use, is intangible but so are any feelings and emotions that I write about. VIII is an exploration of that, as well as necessity and transparency.”
