EP Review Viji - Are You In My Head?

Viji  - Are You In My Head?

Every track here has a magic about it which sounds completely effortless.

Rating:

The debut EP from the recent Dirty Hit signing is a vibrant foray into grunge-leaning indie-pop, with a couple of appearances from a vocoder for good measure. ‘Are You In My Head’ mediates on the kind of questions that emerge in adolescence: ‘Unfair’ ponders people with wealth but no idea what to do with it, while ‘Ghost Song’ sees Viji adopt the perspective of a ghost lingering in this realm, rolling her eyes because “I see you cry but you never knew me, let’s be real.” All of this is wrapped up in a lo-fi sweetness, moving between choral harmonies, sighing guitars and glitchy synths, each track drawing from a different sonic palette whilst maintaining an overall cohesiveness. Every track here has a magic about it which sounds completely effortless. There are beginnings of greatness tucked into this EP, tinder collected and waiting for the match to drop.
