Earlier this year WAMALA dropped the enormous first single “Dance Again” off his forthcoming EP – “Fitter, Better, Healthier”, and now the artist is back with another song to celebrate life and fill listeners with cinematic wonder.
Written after the love of his life randomly appeared in his newsfeed whilst doom scrolling one dreary night during the great Melbourne lockdown of 2020, “My Whole Life” is a celebration of finding love when you least expect it, the beauty and randomness of life and how one simple act of self-acceptance can lead to everything you were ever looking for.
This beautiful, picturesque soundscape draws upon elements of classic soul, modern folk and alternative music to build a world full of magic and awe. With soaring strings (recorded with an 8-piece ensemble at The Base Studios Melbourne), and WAMALA’s achingly beautiful vocals and harmonies, “My Whole Life” lends itself to the great halls of artists like Daniel Johns and Damien Rice where fearless imagination and vulnerability takes centre stage.
Described as a “Black man’s Radiohead”, WAMALA’s upcoming EP, “Fitter, Better, Healthier,” produced by Joshua Moriarty (Miami Horror/Telenova), is a warm and ethereal exploration of mental health, personal growth, and identity. Drawing inspiration from 90’s alternative, R&B, trip hop, grunge, modern folk, gospel, blues, and soul, and set for release in late 2023, “Fitter, Better, Healthier” promises to be a powerful statement from an artist who is unafraid to push boundaries and explore new sonic landscapes.
