Weird Faith by Madi Diaz album review by David Saxum for Northern Transmissions


Weird Faith

Madi Diaz

Madi Diaz’s latest album, “Weird Faith,” delves into the daunting yet exhilarating territory of starting anew in love, echoing Nicole Sobon’s poignant sentiment: “Sometimes the hardest part isn’t letting go but learning to start over.” Building upon the emotional landscape explored in her previous works like “History of a Feeling,” Diaz navigates the anxieties inherent in forging connections, not only with another person but also with oneself.

The album opens a window into Diaz’s introspective journey, with tracks like “Everything Almost” painting vivid vignettes of the euphoria and anticipation that accompany the dawn of a new relationship. Here, Diaz masterfully captures the excitement of envisioning a shared future while delicately acknowledging the vulnerabilities that come with opening one’s heart once more.

Yet, amidst the thrill of newfound affection, “Get To Know Me” strips away the façade, laying bare the raw insecurities and self-doubt that often accompany the quest for intimacy. Through poignant introspection, Diaz grapples with questions of self-worth and readiness, inviting listeners to join her in a soul-searching dialogue.

Drawing from her experiences touring with Harry Styles, Diaz infuses “Weird Faith” with a sense of personal evolution and artistic maturity. The album serves as a testament to her growth as a storyteller, with each track offering a nuanced exploration of love’s myriad complexities.

From the haunting piano melodies of “Hurting You” to the intimate acoustic arrangements that underpin her introspective musings, the production of “Weird Faith” seamlessly marries Diaz’s evocative lyricism with captivating melodies. The result is a sonic tapestry that traverses the spectrum of emotions, effortlessly blending intimacy with professional polish.

In “Weird Faith,” Madi Diaz has crafted more than just an album; she has woven a tapestry of vulnerability and resilience. Through her candid songwriting and heartfelt storytelling, Diaz invites listeners to journey alongside her as she navigates the tumultuous terrain of love and self-discovery. With authenticity and grace, she reminds us that, despite the inevitable heartaches, there is beauty in embracing the uncertainties of the human heart.
