With COVID-19 slowly lifting, many within society are searching for things that uplift their spirits rather than depress their souls after being overwhelmingly bombarded by the press. So, it is an inspiring thing when society can just put on a record to untwist themselves from being tightly wound. “I Don’t Know Where My Home Is” is just that type of song.
“I Don’t Know Where My Home Is” is a song by Liokness – a Folk/Rock/Pop artist from the City of Angels (LA) who is writing music that is testifying and meditative. Her latest track opens with a nice R&B piano chord that soon becomes joined by wide-ranging percussions and a vocal that is strong and airy.
The overall vocal on the track is deep in its register, yet, the catchy, fun-loving, FX, guitars, and synths create an I-HEART-THE-WORLD type of hook which is 100% liberating!
Liokness’ threading theme is about searching for a home with “home” being a physical destination or residence, a state of mind, or a statement of the heart. She sings, reminiscing on the times of old, the world once beautiful, now I’ve got no control of where my life will go . . . will do anything to have you by my side . . . Oh I don’t know where my home is anymore. This theme makes for a song with a far-reaching arm that will connect with anyone on any continent. The “O” alliteration in the hook makes this song sticks to you like a tattoo. Great technique!
Liokness makes sure to keep it quite simplistic with the FX, but creatively spares no expense. That splash of POP created by the echoes like Annie Lennox makes the song just float. Moreover, Liokness’ voice sits right in the middle of Amy Winehouse and Katy Perry giving her a unique prowess. On this track, she is subduing her powerhouse voice by being tender in some spots yet forceful in others showcasing her range.
Liokness is leaving some signature footprints ladies and gents – best to keep track of her to see where else her music takes us!
