Why do we like this?

"I Like to Wait" comes to us from Japan, Man aka a 16-year-old girl named Laeticia Acra from Beirut in Lebanon, and her uncle, Julian. Despite being proposed as a standout single, this track is a member of their debut EP, I Like to Wait. As I listened to this EP, I found myself drawing comparisons between Acra's vocals and those of indie stars like Clairo and girl in red.

Lyrically speaking, "I Like to Wait" focuses on profound, almost poignant, concepts related to death and feeling the weight of pressure. This is especially demonstrated in relatable opening line, "Are you afraid to die that there’s no afterlife?" An unadorned and calming instrumental shifts listeners' focus to the softness of Acra's vocals as they shine.

Fans of bedroom pop rejoice, as a newly appointed member, Japan, Man, joins the genre and grabs the attention of listeners worldwide!
