Wakita Monari’s 2nd album gets some sensual sounding support with the release of the promotional video for the album track “Gozigen Lover-Joi”. Monari luxuriates on silk sheets in a swank room with bamboo wall coverings and oversized framed tapestries. Monari even takes things to the tub, where she clutches her keyboard in a lover’s pose. The 80s funk groove gives us the catchy refrain “See me, touch me, feel me” which yes, I know might very well be cribbed from The Who’s “Tommy”. Yeah, that doesn’t matter to me because Monari sets up some great groove that doesn’t hinge on that lyric at all. Make no mistake, “Gozigen Lover-Joi” is less a song than a groove to get you feelin’ all sexy on your Friday night. I know I’m not the only who thinks Wakita Monari’s second act is one of the best returns in the modern idol era. Monari’s 2nd album “AHEAD!” hit the record store racks on July 25, 2018.
