Bop Shop Queer Music Week Edition: Songs From Princess Nokia, Jan, And More

0 5

There are layers to Indigenous queer pop singer Jayli Wolf’s debut solo EP, Wild Whisper. Between her childhood in a doomsday cult, to coming to terms with her sexual identity, and reacquainting herself with her heritage, the Toronto-based artist packs a mighty punch with all six tracks, though its themes hit hardest on “Would You Die.” Its haunting visual, which Wolf directed, illustrates the ways in which we bring our baggage to every new relationship, shedding armor and revealing our deepest secrets, always with the possibility of creating new scars. “Now you know my secrets / I’m haunted by a stranger,” she sings over a glitchy and psychedelic slow-moving track. Still, Wolf seems to find the answer to her own question from within: Love for oneself cannot be superseded. —Carson Mlnarik
