Same – Orinayo Ojo

IMG_0346

Orinayo Ojo has continued to blow my mind with his lustrous vocals and proficient production skills. Master of suave and mind reeling sonic upheavals, Orinayo is back this Fall with a desperate man’s plea for good loving, beginning with hope but ending tragically.

The personal challenge of uncertainity he’s faced with is characterized in the production of ‘Same’. As if the need to emphasize the dissimilarity in his relationship with this girl he’s wailing about is life threatening, a savage yet subtle takeover plays out at the 49 Second mark. Before this, we escape into a mournful but melodic narrative of a heart-broken man.

The Piano and Drums driven piece accentuated by woeful calls in the background appeals to one’s psyche in a way that only a skilled Writer and Producer can make it.

In just 2 minutes and 40 seconds, Orinayo’s smooth Bass vocals and artful hands take us on a perfect literary journey.  Listen to Same and check out Orinayo’s Soundcloud while you’re at it.
