Kaeji l November 9th (Knockdown Center Queens @ 7 PM)
kraejiyaeji “One More” is out now 🍀 I started writing this track while experiencing deep growing pains. I felt lost in my life's quick change of pace, and was betrayed by someone I trusted. I needed to write this song to understand what was happening around me. Throughout the next few months, I kept revisiting the track, adding and taking away bits, changing the synth completely, rewriting a part of the lyrics—it was a constantly changing piece that documented the process of my transformation. Listening to the earliest version of the song through its evolution, I remembered the times I was confused or angry, processed those feelings, understood my pains, and finally felt like I gained a bit of control over it all. "One More" is about enduring and coming to terms with pain until you have the strength to forgive and move on. 💚 listen at onemore.yaeji.nyc photo by @micaiahcarter styling by @monmoon makeup by @marcelogutierrez
