GAIJIN – “Til Death” (feat. Aamowi)


Recalling James Blake’s delicate piano-forward works, “Til Death” is a stirring ballad from Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and producer GAIJIN. The artist’s debut single, “Til Death” is the first single off GAIJIN’s forthcoming EP, Rose Quartz. Soulful vocals and minimalist piano becomes aided by lush percussion and swelling backing vocals, courtesy of Aamowi, as the two-minute mark passes. The multi-layered vocal approach is beautiful, as GAIJIN’s restrained vocals and Aamowi’s more expressive soulful backing intermingle with precision. This track hooks with its understated development, beautiful vocal touches, and elegant aesthetic.

“Til Death” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2019’ Spotify playlist.
