Another Spoon with Wanaka

Jim Morrison. Janis Joplin. Sid Vicious. Countless others. How many more legendary artists do we have to lose to heroin? That is the question that Wanaka asks on his new single ‘Another Spoon’.

Out now, with an accompanying video you can check out here at RAMzine, is an ode to those artists that have fallen to the opiate. ‘Another Spoon’ has Wanaka’s tender vocals chronicling the escapism of the drug and what it means to the song’s hero. The single has a melancholy that runs throughout, balancing between intimate verses and an explosive end.

The accompanying Claymation video gives has a psychedelic flair. It depicts an artist sad and alone in the real world who discovers a colourful realm blessed with music upon abusing drugs. The bittersweet twist however is that though they have found a temporary happiness, their true body wastes away.

‘Another Spoon’ continues a musical tapestry, Wanaka has begun weaving with evocative and poetic songs. Taking influence from grunge to alt-rock to folk, as well as nature itself, the French-born Israeli artist refines diverse sources into his signature folk-rock sound, bolstered by poignant songwriting.

Having started music at the age of nine, moving across the organ, guitar, and ukulele, music has had the a deep-rooted influence on Wanaka, and becomes apparent why the subject matter in ‘Another Spoon’ would hit affect him so. Wanaka’s intent is to invite music lovers of all backgrounds to listen to ‘Another Spoon’ and consider how they could help a friend with whatever demon is plaguing them.
