Didirri - Measurements
Review by Shannon Shumaker
Australian singer-songwriter Didirri takes the saying “quality over quantity” to heart on his stunning new EP, Measurements. While the EP is only six songs in length, it is filled to the brim with powerful, emotional and cinematic songwriting. Whether it’s the incredibly personal opening track or the massive and theatrical “Formaldehyde,” Didirri shines throughout the entirety of the EP, proving that he is a force to be reckoned with.
Opening Measurements is “Blind You,” a stunning and simplistic song that gives you a glimpse into Didirri’s soul. It’s about letting someone go because you know they’ll be better off without you - a heartbreakingly realistic track. The same heartfelt lyricism drives the rest of the EP as well, with the cinematic “Formaldehyde” serving as its epic peak, both sonically and lyrically. The same can also be said about the stunning “Worth The Wait,” which builds and builds until it comes to a breaking point.
Although there is a great balance throughout the EP, the fifth track, “Jude” is definitely one of the strongest songs lyrically. Lines like “My head don’t work in the usual ways / Cause I’m a fool for pain,” touch on mental health in a raw and relatable way, layered on top of stunning acoustic guitar.
Measurements gives you a glimpse into Didirri’s soul and in turn, provides you with six stunning, impactful songs. Although short, this EP packs a punch and shows quite a bit of promise for Didirri’s future.
