Light Touch: Omoya’s “Dakede”

The latest from Local Visions is another example where overthinking it would be a disservice to the album in question, even if it can be so fun. Omoya’s Dakede offers up six funk-leaning songs that just offer good vibes and a splash of nostalgia. The title track struts along until it reaches the hook, where a chorus of Omoya’s come in to harmonize over one another to create a sunny stretch begging to soundtrack your next afternoon stroll. The rest of Dakede is really various mutations on this, going from the springier bounce of “Icon” to the talk-box-featuring slow jam “SO.” It’s a pleasant set of songs, with Omoya reminding how sometimes simpler aims can really connect.
