CD Review: Justin Nozuka

Justin Nozuka

You I Wind Land & Sea

Glassnote Records

Rating: 4

Listening to singer-songwriter Justin Nozuka’s sophomore effort, You I Wind Land & Sea, is every romantic’s delight. The 12-track album is full of unexpected maturity. Although he is only in his early 20s, it feels like he has had years of experience dealing with the many facets of love. From crooning sweetly about how he has wholeheartedly given his heart to a special love on “Love”, to the beat-thumping ode of the tragic falling apart of a relationship on “I Carried You,” it’s hard to stop listening.

Not only are the soft instrumentals a pleasure to the ears, but the poetic lyrics give each song an otherworldly atmosphere. This album is the equivalent of a heartbroken girl’s tub of chocolate ice cream, except that taking a listen won’t make anybody gain a few pounds more.

Give these tracks a listen: “Gray,” “Carried You,” “Love”
