With the recent release of her EP ‘Hard Way Around The Sun’, MEI shares her latest single ‘Let Dusk Welcome Me’ and here at SGS, we love it! The soulful vocals sit perfectly on the peaceful instrumentation and horn arrangement from Cassie Kinoshi.
In her own words, MEI speaks on the meaning behind the track: “Let Dusk Welcome Me is full of metaphors describing my experience surviving COVID-19 and specifically the first time I left home for a walk after believing that I might not survive. It was dusk, my favourite time of day, and there was this incredible orange and pink light, the air was so fresh and raw in my lungs and it was a moment I’ll never forget.”
I love the imagery used in the lyrics. “Orange and pink light, hit through my soul right” is very vivid and immerses you in the magic of freedom; being able to step outside, inhale and just be. It is an uplifting and optimistic song that you should definitely listen to along with the rest of her EP, available on all streaming platforms.
