Bingkai Karya – In the ever-evolving landscape of the music industry, Surabaya’s very own Weda Mauve is carving out a distinct path for himself with his latest release, “ADRENALINE RUSH.” This mesmerizing track, unveiled on December 22, 2023, under the Semesta Records banner, is a testament to Weda’s unwavering commitment to musical exploration and self-discovery.
At the tender age of 16, Weda burst onto the scene, quickly establishing himself as a dynamic musician and songwriter. His latest offering, “ADRENALINE RUSH,” serves as a captivating glimpse into the artist’s personal journey, both musically and emotionally. The track, packaged alongside his earlier single “DINNER” in the maxi-single format titled “162° F,” showcases the evolution of Weda’s sound.
Weda candidly shares that “ADRENALINE RUSH” revolves around the theme of addiction, be it to a person or something intangible. Speaking about the creation process, Weda emphasizes his desire for listeners to interpret and create their own narratives around his songs. The addictive nature of the song is deliberately left open-ended, inviting the audience to explore the depths of its story.
Notably, “ADRENALINE RUSH” marks a departure from Weda’s indie pop roots, adopting a musical style heavily influenced by house and EDM. This sonic shift is a deliberate result of Weda’s newfound “addiction” to genre exploration. Expressing his boredom with monotonous musical formulas, he states, “I really want to explore modern music with more digital arrangements using synths and pads, not guitar instruments and so on.”
This exploration is not merely an artistic whim but a crucial part of Weda’s journey in solidifying his identity as a singer. Still in his teens, his evolving vocal characteristics and the quest to find the perfect sonic palette for his voice prompt him to venture into uncharted musical territories.
Collaborating with producer Dawairama (Nurul Damar Ramadhan), guitarist for D’Masiv, Weda acknowledges the importance of a familiar collaborator in this experimental phase. The synergy between Weda and Dawairama, cultivated since the beginning of Weda’s musical journey, becomes evident as they navigate the uncharted waters of genre exploration together.
In addition to sonic experimentation, Weda is challenging the conventional method of releasing music. Having released his debut album, “DENIAL,” in 2022, he now embraces the droplet era, releasing songs independently of a full-length album. This approach allows him the freedom to explore diverse musical landscapes and connect more intimately with his audience.
In the eyes of Weda Mauve, “ADRENALINE RUSH” is more than just a song; it’s a manifestation of his addiction to finding his way through the vast realm of music. As he continues to refine his voice, experiment with genres, and forge his unique path, listeners are invited to become addicted to the enigmatic journey that Weda Mauve is undertaking, one musical revelation at a time.
