Review: Nectar-Joji

Review: Nectar-Joji

Nahiara M., Staff Writer

 4 days ago, a new album was released called Nectar by Joji. This album includes 18 songs and 2 new music videos so far. I will be reviewing the songs: Ew, Ticktock, Your Man, Run, and Daylight. 

     The first song I will review is Ew and it is an alternative and rather an unspecific genre of music but includes some violin work and seems like a modern classical song with a twist. This song does not have a full music video yet, but there is supposed to be one coming soon. The song sits at 3 minutes and 27 seconds in length. Overall I would say this song is very in your feels kind of vibe and would give an 8/10.

    The second song I will review Ticktock which comes with an interesting music video. The song is rather an alternative genre and is 2 minutes and 12 seconds long. As for the music video, I think it is very interesting and quite unique as there are scenes where he is juggling juices or riding a shopping cart. As odd as that sounds it is actually very entertaining. My review on this song is 7/10, and as for the music video, an 8/10. 

     The third song I will be sharing my opinion on is Your Man. This song is upbeat and, once again, an alternative genre. The song is 3 minutes and 21 seconds and does include a music video. As for the song, it is very upbeat and overall an 8/10. For the music video, I would give a 9/10. The music video seems to revolve around the idea that this alien landed on earth and we see them dancing and acting creature-like in multiple settings.  

       The second to last song I will be giving my opinion on is  Run. This song is an alternative genre and has quite a lot of guitar and relaxed rock and roll vibes. The song has a music video and is 3 minutes and 23 seconds long. The music video starts off with Joji running through a very long limbo and trying to escape and shows him running in multiple settings. Overall the music video is quite unique and is a 7/10 for me. As for the song itself, I would give a 9/10 as it’s very unique and includes different genres of music. 

     The last song I will be reviewing is Daylight. This song is an upbeat alternative song, has a music video, and is 2 minutes and 46 seconds long. The music video sort of tells a story, where Joji and Diplo (the artists) work at a set for another recording of a music video and just end up having fun at the set where they record. In conclusion, the song is a 9/10 and the music video would be a solid 8/10. 

     Overall these songs are all very unique in my opinion. Although some songs aren’t as great as others, they all are captivating whether it is the great storytelling of the music videos or the elements of the song itself.
