`This is Korie` Showcase Acoustic Beauty Through It’s Melodies and Lyrics How are you enjoying the warm spring weather? We might not be able to enjoy it this year the way we had in the past. Yet, we can still enjoy the spring weather by cracking the window or looking at the flowers blooming nearby. For me, I am able to see the cherry blossoms sprout to life on the tree that is right next door to my apartment. I was also able to open my window more frequently to let the warm air circulate in my apartment. What have you been doing to enjoy spring in your house? One EP that I have recently celebrated the warm spring weather with is This is Korie. This EP — released last year by an artist living in Lagos, Nigeria — is a must listen as it brings life to anyone who listens with its soothing acoustic tunes. Read my review and listen to the songs below. Let me know what you think about the EP in the comments below. While listening to the EP, check out Korie’s explanation about the album at the very end. This is Korie: The Acoustic Beauty That Inspires Life With music, I can give butterflies to the soul, wings to the mind, flight to the imaginations and life to everything. I am music and music is me. Although This is Korie only includes five songs, it is a well-crafted and beautiful EP with a soft acoustic vibe. Each song featured off the EP is diverse in mood, instrumentation, melodies, message behind the lyrics, as well as the language that each song is sung in. Take the first song, “Fear”. It is an upbeat acoustic tune that talks about tackling your fears to become the best version of yourself. Keep on moving, and don’t stop as you take many big chances in life. It is such an inspiring piece but also upbeat in it’s positive melodies and tempos! “Fear” is a great tune to start off the EP with it’s positivity and
The up-beat tempo keeps on going when the album shifts to the second song, “Foe”.
This song is one of favorites off the EP as I love it’s unique upbeat tempo, the guitar
playing down to the lowest range in the musical scale, and the brilliant way how Korie
sings the song, especially during the chorus with the tremeloes.
The next song, which is entitled “My Love Will Find You”, is another favorite of mine. A
mid-tempo love song that is filled with passion. You can hear this passion fully in the
vocals and the guitar. My favorite is the chorus as I love the melody: it is simply
beautiful and unique.
“Change Me”, which is the second to last song, is upbeat in it’s own way. Still an
acoustic piece, the tune has more s**** than the previous songs. You can hear this
spunky energy in the melody and the instrumentation. It also incorporates a backing
vocal track, a keyboard, and a drum kit to add a little more umph to the song. It is a
wonderful tune, especially with the chorus, as there is a lot more power found not only
in the instrumentation but also in Korie’ vocals. It is such a show-stopper of a tune!
The EP closes off with a slow-tempo named “Ifo (Love)”. The song is unique as it sang
in both English and Yoruba. It is a beautiful tune to end the EP as the melodies are so
beautiful as well as the message that centers about love.
This is Korie is a beautiful collection of acoustic tunes that have different messages and
moods. The EP also showcases Korie’s talent towards songwriting, playing instruments,
and also her beautiful vocals. I can’t wait to hear what her second EP will sound like!
