Kiwi Indian singer, theajsound aka AJ released his second single ‘PLEASE’ on different music streaming and social media platforms and was received warmly by its global fanbase.
The new song after AJ’s debut single ANYMORE has grabbed the attention of its audience not just in New Zealand but with radio stations all over the world such as New York, Namibia and the Caribbean picking up the song.
PLEASE. continues to take the audience on the singer-songwriter’s post heartbreak journey.
In PLEASE., AJ sings about being betrayed by his own feelings, as he can see an inevitable break-up on the cards.
“To most people PLEASE. will sound like a letter to my ex to come back to me,” he said in an interview and zoom concert with the Indian Weekender earlier last month.
“In reality, it’s also a plea to the old me; to not sacrifice my true self and true personality in the name of love,” he added.
A crucial part of theajsound’s musical process is finding the sounds that take his songs to the next level.
“While working on the song at home, I just couldn’t find the right percussion for PLEASE.,” he says.
“I was still in the zone when I went into the kitchen for a break and started playing around with what I could find.”
theajsound reveals what he found in that kitchen, which ended up being the perfect percussion instrument to tie PLEASE. together.
“The gentle sound of maracas you can hear is actually the sound of stirring salt in a glass,” he says.
AJ, originally from Mumbai, was one of the first musicians to write a song in self-isolation and bring the community together during COVID-19 crisis.
