I really enjoyed Jay Som’s album Anak Ko. It has just the right mix of indie-pop and chill music. I first listened to the album while doing homework and each song’s melody served as perfect study music. Upon listening more closely to the lyrics, I came to appreciate the message the band communicates. My favorite song from the album, “Tenderness”, is very chill and actually quite meaningful if you really listen. The album, titled Anak Ko, translates to “my child” in Tagalog. This is representative of what the lead singer’s mother called her for her entire life–it’s a term of endearment, love, and comfort. After listening to Anak Ko, I’m definitely considering listening to some of Jay Som’s earlier work. I recommend the album to anyone seeking some relaxing tunes.
