August Wahh has dropped her soulful new single ‘Elated’

Following her first solo release of ‘Know What I Want’ in December, the Filipino singer-songwriter returns with a triumphant new single that is steeped in sophisticated warmth.

‘Elated’ navigates the nuances of carrying on with life with a recovered sense of identity and purpose. 

Says Wahh:

“I wrote ‘Elated’ as a reminder to myself and to others that no matter what you’ve been through, the goal is to rise above situations that made you feel small – by accepting where you’ve been and the journey you’re on, even if you don’t know where you’re going. It’s a reminder to own yourself and live life to the fullest.”

With producer crwn’s suave beats and jazzy sonic touches, August Wahh’s ‘Elated’ makes a great case for both easy casual listening and soulful rumination.

The neo-soul songwriter shares:

“The song was basically written on the spot. crwn had a beat he played, and I wrote along it. On the same day, we recorded ‘Elated’.”

As accidental magic goes, the spur-of-the-moment recording birthed an empowerment anthem that finds refuge in timelessness and global appeal. 

At a time when some of her contemporaries have chosen to embrace conventional approaches to songwriting, August Wahh channels her energy towards promoting self-worth as part of her personal mantra. 

She asks rhetorically “does it matter where I go?” while also guaranteeing to own every decision she makes, tackling the age-old question with emotional openness and introspection.

August Wahh made her performance debut at Wonderfruit in Thailand last year together with fellow-Filipino crwn.
