Miami, FL. (February 4th 2021)— Di WAV pays tribute to one of her greatest inspirations, covering the song

Precious’, originally performed by the legendary band Depeche Mode as part of her EP, inspired by the solitude and vibe of the pandemic. ‘Despierta’ is the second EP that Di releases since she adopted her artistic identity. With intricate production throughout and a synth-heavy, ethereal sound – Di’s version of ‘Precious’ is a beautiful rendition of the classic track.

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.

A lonely 2020 was the inspiration for the EP “Despierta”, produced by five-time Latin Grammy nominee Marthin Chan and Grammy winner Reuven Amiel. Within these four tracks, you will find a perfect synchrony between deep lyrics and a dark and mysterious sound. A fusion of rock, indie pop and electronic music brings to life a concept that transports the listener to a different world.

Alongside the 4 track EP, Di WAV will be releasing 4 long format music videos which will showcase her music in a cinematic way to give her audience an even stronger image and feel of what the EP means to her.
