Track: ‘Something I Do’ – YAGKI delivers a languid yearning song that burns with intensity and soul.

YAGKI, the artist formerly known as Sarah Yagki (and no doubt still is by family and friends) is a firm favourite here at the antipodean outpost of Backseat Mafia, and she has just released another thrilling, visceral track ‘Something I Do’.

‘Something I Do’ confirms YAGKI as an important talent in the music scene: it has a languorous, luxurious sound augmented by YAGKI’s velvet vocals and dynamic presence. There is a blush of R&B, a little soul and a little indie pop. The catchy chorus enters the frame with an uplifting sweep and the track is steeped in yearning and desire, an inflection of melancholia.

That delicate sense of vulnerability is reflected in the themes of the track. YAGKI says:

‘Something I Do’ is an exploration of the sensation of emptiness and the acceptance of detachment. Reflecting on a childhood experience where I was in a coma at the age of three, the song delves into how such trauma echoes into my later life. It delves into themes of impulsivity and identity struggles, serving as a caution to those attempting to forge close connections with me while I feel so empty.

Accompanying the release is the enigmatic music video directed/filmed by Max Pasalic (BESTIES).

‘Something I Do’ is out now and available to download and stream here.

A fiery presence, YAGKI has already impressed us greatly with her live show (see our review here) and her previous singles and it is clear she is a prodigious talent that can only blossom even more.
