Last week, Lady Donli started bedazzling the path to her return with a number of posts via her social media profiles that more than heralded her come back, but also, spoke to the presence of her laudable creative style despite her absence from the scene. Split across metaphors that allude to self-awareness and sensitivity, including a total overhaul of her Instagram, a snippet that cast her as a lonely sojourner, and an eventual brief but touching tell all of what led to her present state, the road to Searching, her latest, was short but emotional. It also does an adequate job of preparing us for the master storytelling that succeeds Rockstar Parole and precedes a six-track EP, Wild, slated for an end-of-month release.
A product of the sad thoughts that emerged from the crevices of her mind, the GMK produced Searching, an obvious metaphor for an emotional path she was on, finds the artist questioning her identity and existence in the lithe vocals that became a fan favorite during her early days as a SoundCloud gem. A deviation from the happiness that clouded her debut album, Enjoy Your Life, Searching with its strong tragedy leanings, makes up for the happiness void lyricism in its up-tempo that will definitely serve as a pick-up for listeners.
Its summertime and music is being offered in different relatable ways. For Lady Donli, a perfect comeback segues into the refreshing nature of introspection and the vibrancy of bass-led percussions.
