dwta – Delikado
Transitioning into a more pop and ballad sound, dwta offers a relaxed and catchy style of music that will have you swaying along. She brings a modern twist to the nostalgic vibes of the 50s-70s era. In her song “Delikado”, dwta talks about the experience of being “ghosted” by someone. This refers to the scenario where a person initially gives you butterflies and excitement, only to suddenly disappear without any explanation. The melody will surely bring you nostalgia while the lyrics will give you that relatable feeling of love and at the same time, heartbreak. The song begins with a kilig and exciting vibe but takes a sad turn, leaving a bittersweet twist.
