Di WAV is the electronic/indie-pop outfit of Swiss-Guatemalan songwriter Daniela Carpio, now gearing up for an EP release, ‘Despierta’, landing on the 4th of February. Blending synthesizers with deep, poignant guitar tones, the EP is set to turn heads and ears, thanks to engaging songwriting and perfectly-crafted productions. The collection will also feature a personal rendition of Depeche Mode’s hit ‘Precious’.
Not a stranger to the music scene, Di WAV has been active in the field since a very young age, writing her first song at just 14. After debuting in 2018, the talented songstress achieved wide industry recognition, reaching the n.4 in Guatemala’s National Chart with ‘Mente Criminal’, while being nominated for 40 Principales Awards in Spain as ‘Best Guatemalan Act’.
Now returning with ‘Despierta’, Di WAV changes gear and delivers the perfect synthesis of her creativity, thanks to a genre-bending attitude that travels freely between electronica, guitars and indie-pop. Produced by five-time Latin Grammy nominee Martin Chan and Grammy winner Reuven Amiel, the EP is set to be a hit among listeners, especially thanks to ‘Precious’, a cover by Depeche Mode. About the choice to include the track, Di WAV explains: “More than a cover, to me, it is a tribute to the band and how much they have touched me with their music throughout my life. I think it’s a nice way to close the EP because of what it means to me on so many different levels.”
