싱어송라이터 이예인의 두 번째 싱글앨범, [미지근]


"아무 계획 없이 산다는 건 정말 무섭다.

목적 없이, 정처 없이 끝도 없이 달렸던 고등학교 시절.

역시나 큰 성과를 얻지 못한 나는 졸업 후 무작정 서울로 올라갔다.

그 후 시간이 어떻게 흘러갔는지 모를만큼 무의미한 시간들을 보냈다.

무기력하고 외로웠던 시간들.

나보다 힘든 사람은 많기에, 그저 그냥 그렇게 목적 없이 살아가는게 힘들다고 말할 수 없었다.

몸과 마음이 자꾸만 편안함과 익숨함에 적응해 갔다.

하루가 언제 시작되고 언제 끝이 나는지 불분명해 졌다."

작곡자 이예인은 그녀의 두번째 자작곡인 '미지근' 에 그녀의 허무함과 무기력한 마음을 담았다.

"텅 비어버린 마음, 차갑지도 뜨겁지도 않은 미지근" 그녀에게 위안임과 동시에 커다란 벽이었던 그녀만의 동굴에 대한 갑갑함을 표출한다.

[Album review by Hyun Lee]

"It is a terrifying thing,” says Yein, the artist, “to live a life without a goal.”

“My high school days swept past like a flash, not knowing where I’m headed.

After failing to achieve successful outcomes in college entrance, I traveled to Seoul without giving it much thought.

I spent countless meaningless days there, feeling powerless and lonely.

I know that there are other people that are undergoing much,

much worse, and that’s why I could not complain out loud about my struggle with a life devoid of purpose and direction.

My body and mind gradually got used to the convenient and the usual.

I could hardly manage to track when a day began or ended.”

Singer-Songwriter Yein Lee, in her second original single“Lukewarm,” conveys the void and powerless state of mind.

“An empty mind, lukewarm, neither cold nor hot.”

She describes her frustration with a cave in her mind, which was her hiding place that ironically imprisoned her.

[Album review by Samuel Song]

With an enticing melody and visualizable lyrics, Singer-Songwriter, Yein Lee,

tells her story about an inner battle she faced while growing up.

Listening to her song, Lukewarm, I was able to gain some perspective of her childhood, and also relate to it on a personal level.

Being able to identify and share commonalities within the song,

made the experience more meaningful and kept me coming back to it again and again.

[Album review by Nia Primm]

Automatically, the song starts off with the calming voice of the singer Yein Lee.

As you listen to ‘Lukewarm’, you feel like you’re waiting at a crosswalk in Toronto,

reflecting on your own thoughts while watching the city life around you.

From my first initial listen, I found myself being drifted into a sense of calm and instantly smiled at the melody of the song.

It felt nostalgic because of the memories that came up for me while listening and also lifted my mood.

From a closer examination on the lyrics, the line: “Cozy and warm but that's it nothing special” stuck out to me the most.

Different situations that aren’t always as good as it seems

but the way I interpreted the cozy and warm part is external like your smile while the nothingness is internally like in your heart.

To sum up the song, the best way to describe my feelings towards it’s like daydreaming with a hint of bittersweetness.

Lukewarm is a perfect song to listen to on any occasion like spending your day observing the lake with friends or commuting home after a dreary day.
