‘Hiding Place” by Yoji is a neo-soul song described by the artist as a “lock-down love song.”
It has me swaying to the smooth beat, picturing all the people I wish I could see right now. Let’s just say, if this song doesn’t have you FaceTiming your loved ones, I don’t know what will.
The song starts off strong. Yoji’s smooth tone emerges from rumbling static, as sweet as honey. The lyrics tell a soulful story about longing for that social connection with a special person. Then the lovely production and background sounds compliment Yoji’s impressive vocal runs perfectly by contributing to the lonesome vibe.
