yearold New Zealand musician Arjuna Oakess debut EP The Watcher is a showcase of his ability as a singersongwriter instrumentalist and producer and a testament to his depth of engagement with music br br The first two tracks on the EP fit neatly within the jazzinfused soul music landscape he is quickly becoming part of but the latter half of the EP is far harder to categorise Featuring instrumentation from some of New Zealands most exciting young jazz musicians The Watcher explores a wide variety of themes and musical ideas with Arjunas charismatic soul vocals and robust sonic palette serving as a connective thread From big social issues to personal relationships and internal selfdiscoveries across The Watcher Arjuna takes his cue from the title track and exploration of mass surveillance and its relevance within our everyday lives br br This watcher theme continues throughout the rest of the EP with the stories told rendered as if being observed by an outside force Decorated by cinematic soundscapes hypnotic grooves creative improvisation and catchy melodies Arjunas debut is a test palette for his future projects one that makes his enthusiasm to develop and explore themes and style in song abundantly clear
