Wayaway | Dark Coast


Her moniker via soundcloud is Wayaway, but I’m not sure of anything more than that. She lists her name as Steph Wilson from Melbourne, Australia. I’ve been listening to her online tracks since she first posted “North Faded” one year ago. Since then, I heard her featured on a song called “Aches” by a musician named Wolodarsky, also on soundcloud. She just posted a single, “Dark Coast”, her first song on soundcloud in a year and it’s wonderful. Her vocals have a nascent quality, twee, light, and seductive as her looks. Reminds me of the soft vocalizations of Montréal’s Bijou. Here’s to hoping she posts more music over the next year. “Dark Coast” is soulful lounge, electronic glitches, jazzy guitar flourishes and keyboard supplement her shadowy, seductive hymnal. What I love about this style is that it’s all about the song, as individual musical prowess gives way to mood, flavor and atmosphere. — David D. Robbins Jr.
