Awake. is the professional name of singer, songwriter and guitarist Worapat Surakkhaka. The Thai musician made his professional solo recording debut last year with the single “Trading of Souls”. That track introduced a skilled musician and composer who pairs beautiful, melodic acoustic guitar work with dark and introspective lyrics.
With a mechanically complex and musically intricate fingerpicking style, Surakkhaka creates lush acoustic guitar soundscapes which feature only minimal accompaniment. Occasional synths and percussion color his sound which is centered around his beautiful guitar playing and somber, dreamy vocals. Since his debut, the prolific artist has delivered five singles. His style revolves around complex fingerstyle folk guitar and dark-gothic tones.
“Last Light” is the brand new single from Awake. released worldwide via all major streaming services on May 15, 2022. Worapat opens the track with his signature guitar stylings. Bass notes drone as a minor-key melody unfolds in layers on the higher frets. Deep and sparse piano chords help set a beautiful yet ominous scene for the singer’s dark meditation on life and death.
