MOKITA, “Inside Out”
Can Nashville’s Mokita do any wrong with his slew of singles since the start of the year? Right now, I simply cannot get enough of his songs! Following “London”, “Kiss And Tell” (currently #9 on my personal chart), and the brief taste of “Til I Don’t”, is another thoughtful release in “Inside Out”. This one goes straight for the same songwriting camp as fans of Lauv might enjoy. It’s a reflective song about the frustrations of self-doubt when you’re in a relationship and someone could find out how you truly feel. It’s mainly an acoustic pop adventure where the production emerges at the bridge but does not intrude, and instead reinforces the strong emotions of the song. With a few more winners like “Inside Out”, Mokita will have enough songs for an incredible album or EP release. They all need to be packaged together and heard consecutively. Listen to “Inside Out”, as well as the others I’ve mentioned, and find out why.
