Wai Lana’s “Colors” is a track that builds upon the pop genre of the early 1980s. A bouncy beat and sunny sound works perfectly with the soft vocals of Wai Lana. A secondary (male) set of vox ensures that the track stays fresh from its initial note to concluding second. A bit of horns are interspersed through Colors that match perfectly through a bold bass and booming drums. With so many layers, fans will be able to play Colors multiple times and continue to find new twists and turns. This will be bouncing through our heads the next few months.
“Oh My Sweet Lord” is a touching track that brings together classical music, show tunes, and world music. The single, the latest from Wai Lana, is something that can speak to a wide variety of listeners no matter what genre they like. There is little more to the single than Wai Lana’s vocals and just the lightest in the way of instrumentation, but this composition opens into something magnificent by the 2:30 mark. While the song reaches over the 6-minute mark, there are enough twists and turns to ensure listeners follow in to each and every note.
