Sanctuary – Joji | “As soon as I heard the instruments for this, I knew it had to be something like corny shit,” he tells BAZAAR.com.

That meant using everything from an old video recorder to a real spaceship with a cockpit, control panels and even a ping pong room.

The single, released through 88rising, Japanese-American singer Joji offers a mix of R & B and bright intergalactic pop sounds. This song, in itself, is an escape from reality through its soundscapes from another world, listeners could easily transcend to a state that one feels during an overnight trip by car. Their music seems very intentional, and with “Sanctuary”, they elevate you to a space that feels far away from your previous songs. The track can place it in a present state, lighter and happier; It is a nice contrast.

 

 
Directed by Eoin Glaister, he finds the artist in a melancholy space odyssey the story of “Captain Joji”, a space ranger who travels through light years to defeat his archenemy.
Joji uses the full potential of his vocal range with harmonized falsettos on a melody powered by synthesizer. . Despite sticking to their weapons and creating another ballad filled with love, there is a remarkable change in Joji’s lyricism when he deviates from direct confessions to more poetic verses.
 

 

 
When Joji (born George Miller) composes or listens to an instrumental, the visual concept “has to appear or is not worth exploring as a clue to me”.
Joji is an ingenious, emotional lyricist and a passionate producer who loves to juxtapose contrasting sounds, like metal and hip-hop, that we find in his debut album Ballads 1, which was released in October. He attributes his breadth of sound influences to his childhood years and secondary education, when artists such as Limp Bizkit, 50 Cent and Flying Lotus were in rotation.

[Verse 1]
Go ahead and bark after dark
Fallen star, I’m your one call away
Motel halls, neon walls
When night falls, I am your escape

[Pre-Chorus]
When you lay alone, I ache
Something I wanted to feel

[Chorus]
If you’ve been waitin’ for fallin’ in love
Babe, you don’t have to wait on me
‘Cause I’ve been aimin’ for Heaven above
But an angel ain’t what I need

[Verse 2]
Not anyone, you’re the one
More than fun, you’re the sanctuary
‘Cause what you want is what I want
Sincerity

[Pre-Chorus]
Souls that dream alone lie awake
I’ll give you somethin’ so real

[Chorus]
If you’ve been waitin’ for fallin’ in love
Babe, you don’t have to wait on me
‘Cause I’ve been aimin’ for Heaven above
But an angel ain’t what I need

[Bridge]
Pull me oh so close
‘Cause you never know
Just how long our lives will be

[Chorus]
If you’ve been waitin’ for fallin’ in love
Babe, you don’t have to wait on me
‘Cause I’ve been aimin’ for Heaven above
But an angel ain’t what I need
