Pop duo Fiji Blue is back with what might be their best song to date. “Waves” is a pop song that bears a bounce similar to a tropical, slowed down dance track. In the first seconds, the instrumental brings the listener to the edge of their seat, and they are met with velvety vocals that, for first time listeners, are a pleasant surprise.
“If I gave you the sunset, you’d wish for the rain,” Trevor Dering sings on the chorus. The song is the best kind of extended analogy, and the duo choosing waves as the subject matter wasn’t just because it sounds great.
“‘Waves’ is our way of expressing the sadness that exists in a relationships lasts breath. We created this song to give life to that moment of emotional absence one may feel while lost in their never-ending pursuit of true love. This song carries a sad yet hopeful lyric over a nostalgic like aura of the ocean, constantly finding ways to seem infinite,” said Fiji Blue.
It’s a song that is as emotional as it is captivating, and is as strong a single as anything that the quickly-rising duo has put out.
