Splashing Artist Tsu Nami Debuts as an Electronic Force with EP Ethereal

Rapidly rising artist Tsu Nami has just released her debut EP titled Ethereal, an all female project that contains some of her greatest hits. It features other vocalists such as Skyler Cocco, Dani King, and Luma.

Ethereal, as Nami has said herself, marks a massive milestone in her journey and capabilities as an artist. At only 22 years old, her unique blend of electronic music and pop influence has reached thousands of fans worldwide, only stapling her as a creator off to an incredibly strong start. These aren’t the only successes Tsu Nami can be given credit for, however, as she has made other touchdowns, including her previous involvement in touring the US with electronic music artist San Holo, and playing Countdown NYE in December 2021. Now, with 2022 ahead, she has sets booked for BUKU, Beyond Wonderland, a show at Red Rocks supporting Jai Wolf, and more shows to be announced soon. Overall, she a constantly moving forward, and a force that is not to be reckoned with.

“Fire” introduces the EP along with Skyler Coco, and brings forth the sheer power and delicacy of Tsu Nami’s vocals. In an exciting blend of multiple electronic sounds working together, the two sing about being lifted up, recognizing your worth, and going even higher from there.

“Angel” with Dani King gives incredible imagery of being a force of love that cannot be caged by any means. King brings her own furious flare to every lyric presented here, as the lines say themselves, “you don’t have to tell me I’m a nightmare, I already know my love’s a little unfair.” Simply said, the fast pace of this track brings a savory taste of adrenaline that is too difficult not to fall in love with.

“Dream About You” is lead by Luma, and reminisces over peaceful memories shared with someone who is not close to you anymore. The single holds a more funky beat than the other tracks, and its fun bounciness is enough to get any foot tapping or head nodding to the rhythm. Time is something that is constantly slipping away from our fingertips, and this track believes in such truth entirely.

“Party” brings Skylar Coco back once more, and talks about not wanting to be at a party where you’re all alone. With tastes of dubstep and a unique way of carrying the vocal composition, everyone can relate to not wanting to be somewhere that seems too overwhelming, and desiring the retreatment to one’s own zone.

“Ethereal” deserves the name of the EP title, as it shines as a stand-out instrumental from the rest of the tracks. There is an incredible amount of variety introduced in the span of four minutes, from sparkling twinkles to a classic keyboard to heavy drums leading up to a drop, there’s something here for everyone.

It’s safe to say that this is an outstanding first EP. Tsu Nami can only find her style and hone her skills even more from here, and I’m incredibly excited to watch this happen. Ethereal as a whole can be viewed and added for your enjoyment here:
