Uma das descobertas desta semana é Sir Jay. "Big Waves" é o tema escolhido para a amostra, que mistura o bom estilo indie rock com sonoridades lo-fi e ainda ritmos de percussão que nos colocam em sentido com as vibrações transmitidas pela letra. Com um ritmo inebriante, Big Waves traz consigo uma história bastante pessoal:

Big Waves tells about the indifference and irresponsibility in the modern world. It’s the feeling of finding yourself at home under the soothing waves, while the chaotic sounds coming from the outside world are left unheard. Those waves tell you that somebody else will make a change and that somebody else will save the world. Nowadays, some of us have a privilege to observe the devastation caused by consumer society from a safe distance. Finland is a good example of this - the happiest country in the world. I wrote ‘Big Waves’ soon after moving back from London to Helsinki. For me London had a reputation of being the heart of high-culture, music and big dreams, which is why so many, me included, have moved there. What struck me, was getting in touch with the world’s harshness for the first time in my nordic life. Nevertheless, while living and struggling financially in London, the world felt more real than in my home country. The problems were everywhere, and it was somehow reassuring to be out of the safety-bubble. The question is how to live happily while knowing that the world is in chaos? We have to stop being passive, take action and change the course, which is the underlying message of ‘Big Waves’.

Deixo-vos com o tema e com mais informação sobre o artista.

Below the surface
Life can be perfect
No shade from the sun
Sea is my blanket
It hides me from madness
And diving is fun

When you dive this deep
Do you have to come up?
Darling I dipped my feet
And I sank in my heart

Big waves in my head

Below the surface
Life can be perfect
No shade and no sun
I’ve got the privilege
To play with the big fish
And playing is fun

When you dive this deep
Do you have to come up?
Darling I dipped my feet
And I sank in my heart

Big waves in my head
Big waves in my head

BIG WAVES IN MY HEAD
BIG WAVES IN MY HEAD
BIG WAVES IN MY HEAD
BIG WAVES

Save me
From your fears
I hear the big waves in my ears
I don't wanna see
But the surface
I hear the big waves in my
I hear the big waves in my ears
Big waves in my head
Big waves in my head...
