Alternative soul singer/songwriter J Appiah digs deep in his new single "Wyhg" ("Where’s Your Heart Gone") and details the dark patches that are spread across a seemingly perfect relationship.
"Wyhg" takes us on a journey of self-reflection, regret, and ultimately owning up to one's wrongdoings. The East London singer employs an engulfing guitar-laden canvass to bring this to fruition. He starts off with a laidback melodic run before exploding to a rousing bluesy gospel chorus to seal the deal. The record is as dynamic as they come and J Appiah's evocative lyrics are the icing on top as run the gamut of emotions that run through the veins of a man trying to find his center amidst guilt.
"Wyhg" follows a spate of post-lockdown musical activity from the singer whose previous releases include "Bitter X Sweet" with a video directed by SXSW Grand Jury Prize winner Mitch Kalisa and "Breathe" in October. All three of his latest releases examine feelings of alienation and self deception.
