Alte creative, Wavy The Creator has released a brand new seven-track EP titled “P.S. Thank You For Waiting”.
As notable as ever is Wavy The Creator’s silky vocals, an unexpected feature that contrasts the edgy persona she shares with the world, but this isn’t the immediate striking feature on the EP, her employment of friends to stand as comrades in the different dimensions she exists in, is what speaks at first listen, coupled with her sensitivity as reflected in the project’s title. Tay Iwar, CKay, Efya, and Wurld all make the cut on tracks that are extensions of them.
On the opener, Letter To Oxygen, Tay Iwar who previously redefined love on True Love, a standout single off Wizkid’s critically acclaimed Made In Lagos album, joins Wavy in penning heartfelt notes to their muses, sporting striking notes completely washed by swirling synths punctuated by reverberating drums. Though not indicative of anything personal, the track exposes us to the key features that put Wavy on the radar and they perfectly segue into Harmonies, the earlier released Wurld-assisted symphony of sound and sentiment we’ve come to love.
Unconforming as ever, Wavy The Creator launches into a groovy new universe on Got All Your Sugar (G.A.Y.S), an embodiment of the word ‘gay’ in whatever context listeners deem fit with its heady chords and clinky keys. This determination to not dwell in a single dimension becomes even more obvious as she delves into the newer and more fashionable variety of Afropop on the CKay and Efya assisted, Stella Riddim, a track that leverages the trio’s strong experimental skills. F*ck Luv, throws us back to 70s disco with its galvanic drums, while Time, also powered by Wavy’s Genre Benders band, cushions the heaviness of its predecessor. Finally, on Situations with its strong ties to electronic dance music, Wavy The Creator seals the deal, proving that her universe is her own box, completely set apart from everyone else’s and subject only to her changes.
